Thread: potpourri bowls

  1. #1

    potpourri bowls

    Two segmented potpourri bowls. They are both 61 pieces of wood. One is curly maple and walnut and the other one is purpleheart. The maple has 2 coats of antique oil and just needs to be buffed, while the purpleheart does not have any finish on it. I am waiting a few days for it to turn back to purple again. They were both made from the same plans, but turned out differently, as I used 3/4" thick wood on one and 1" thick wood on the other.
    Critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking!

    Both look great. I like the shape of the maple/walnut bowl more than than the Pupleheart.

    I agree with Mohammad. Your joints look squeaky tight, too. Great work.

    Sorta of funny...I make a few potpourri bowls to offer as my low-end products, since I can knock one out in about 30 to 45 minutes. Obviously, there's nothing low-end about these segmented ones. Very well done, Robert.
