    Potpourri Vase

    Here is a cedar Potpourri vase I did for my SIL. She saw the one my wife uses and loved it. So here it is 5 1/2" across and 3 1/2" high. It has one coat of antique oil and then several light coats of lacquer. She wanted it shiney.

    I missed this somehow, Bernie. Your SIL should be very pleased with this one. I like the lids you're using, too.

    That looks great... beautiful shine.... I'll have to try your finish method... I never like the way my cedar pieces finish when I add a finish like oil or poly..haven't tried lacquer.... I often just leave them raw and buff out with a little carnuba... customers like to smell the cedar.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
