    Potpourri Pots

    Well made a couple of Potpourri pots today. 2 out of spalted cherry and 1 out of walnut. Both finished with Minwax Antique Oil and buffed. The inside I put a couple of coats of poly on. They are 5 1/2" across and 3 1/2" high.

    I really like these Bernie! Most impressed with the different woods and how you managed to get such rich colors out of them! Great looking finishes! Very nice work!

    Don they are basically easy to make and I get mine from CSUSA or you can get them at Packard Woodworks. CSUSA has more of a selection.


    Thanks for the comments. Travis that piece of walnut came from John Hart. I would like to find a few more pieces just like it.

    Very nice Bernie, I made some of those for Christmas presents before, and they went over great!

    Great job, Bernie. They all look real nice. The fit of the lid in the last pic looks perfect.
