    Walnut Potpourri Pot

    This little piece of walnut started as a hollow form, but the opening warped enough while drying that it ended up bigger than I wanted, so I enlarged it a bit more to fit a potpourri pot lid. It's about 4" wide by 2 1/2" tall.

    I finished it with Antique Oil inside and out, and buffed with tripoli and white diamond, then Renaissance Wax. This piece of walnut has some nice figure to it, but in hindsight, I turned it upside down. The bottom has the best grain of the whole piece. (At least the inside looks very nice.)

    Vaughan very nice. Do you have a flat spot on the bottom or does the bowl spin on the round bottom? Nice curves to the bowl .

    Thanks for the compliment, Ken. It doesn't show very well in the picture, but the bottom has a flat foot (concave, actually) that's about 5/8" in diameter.

    Very nice chunk of wood, you showed it off well!

    Did you get the top piece from LV?

    That is where I got mine.

    Cheers!

    I think I got it from Penn State, but they are definitely all coming from the same factory in Asia. I picked up four of them last year, and this is the second one I've used. I think I'll just wait to use the remaining ones until I have another HF where the opening gets too big.
