    Pot-o-whatever

    Just another HF with a big opening. So I thought...let's put a lid on it...oops, never done a lid...oh!! let's put a knob on it...oops...never done a knob. So, this is a piece of English walnut and a Redwood (I swore I'd never touch again) lid and a black walnut knob. Nothing is glued and all but the pot may end up in the marshmallow toaster. One coat of WoP after a 600 sanding. Easy now...some of this is my first time

    Jim,
    I like the pot and the lid and I like the handle but not on that pot/lid. To my eye the handle takes away from the pot, I would have prefered something shorter maybe a round top, If you want to embelishment it put a groove on it.

    Now that just my humble opinion and we all know about opinions

    It has a look like something that might have been in an old time herbalists shoppe or apothecary... With something strange inside!

    Nice chunk o walnut there, amigo! I like it, except... using three random wood species says scrap mock up to my eye. Im probably too OCD about symmetry and balance and think that if you used 1 contrasting, or different wood sandwiched between the handle and pot it would work just fine for me.
    Just my .02 - keep em coming!

    My thought to Don...squaty bottom and a thin top doesn't always work. Leaning to a flair'd round knob.

    That's how I felt putting it together...mis-mash. So it was more of a "let's see how to do this" kinda thing. If I'd know it was going to come out llike that, I'd of done something different

    Keep the pot. Loose the handle. It's not that bad, just better without it.
