    i'll throw mine in to

    As it seems to be the season of potpourri bowls. Here are a few of mine i'm working on. The ones in back are walnut, cedar, and hickory. Up front are spalted maple, spalted cherry, and spalted beech. Still need to do 6 more. These are all christmas gifts.

    Lovely wood you have there. I like them all though the rounder ones are my favourites. Looks as though you have the same lids as me?

    They look good, Steve. Is there a size that seems more popular? Thought I might try making some, for gifts and for sale.

    Richard glad ya made it here from woodturners america.
    As far as size i make mine any where from 4 1/2 to 6". not real sure what the best size is for sale as i don't sell much. This is just a hobby for me and i'd rather give something away as to sell it.

    Well done Steve on some nice PP. Nice looking wood on all. I make mine about 6" to 7" as those sizes seem to sell the best. I do give a few away but sell most of them thru the Art Gallery.

    Thanks Bernie. I have sold a few, but it's more fun for me to give them away. I do some stuff that i sell but not turnings.
