    Sources for potpourri lids?

    Would you kind people share where you get your pewter lids? I know of Packard, PSI and craft USA. Bernie has a cool one from hallmark. The little pots seem like gratifying practice, but I'd get sick of the same 4 designs.
    Thanks in advance,
    Michal

    I've bought mine primarily from Craft Supplies since they seem to have the largest selection out of the ones here in the States. Pete M-J posted this link to the place he gets his from in the UK...I see they have a few different designs, but haven't checked to see if they ship to the US:

    After an exhaustive Google search I found a few more sources with a few different option. Didn't someone have a ceramic one posted awhile ago?

    Michael, I liked you comment about scrolling some lids. I've been pondering that for a while now because I love to use my scroll saw. I think some scrolled lids out of contrasting wood with some carving to add texture would be a great project. Why don't you go first so I can see how an expert does it. I'm not real good at the scrolling and carving.

    Now that's funny, but thanks for the vote of confidence!
    Paul I just got my mini holloiwing rig, and will p/u the delta in Dec. Im afraid Im going to be QA'ing these badboys until at least spring The scrol saw does a good job as an aux table for misc stuff when Im makig pens over between the drill press and the disk sander.
    If I was to do it today (who knows in a month or longer) I would find the piece, find a way to chuck it up and turn it correct size. Then find a design you like and glue it on...drill the holes and whip out the dremel or fasc.
    Im pretty sure there's somenone here who has actually done this and can tell us zactly how to do it the easy way!
    Thanks,
    Michael

    I scrolled a lid a while back,

    Like I said earlier, I am looking for a Pineapple lid as LOML is an avid Pineapple collector, (I wear pineapple shirts so she will talk to me )

    It was a fun project and I may do another...
