    More pots pourri

    This first one is a taller version, 6.5" tall x 4.5" wide, box elder burl with a walnut rim. The second one is 6.5" wide x 3.5" tall, russian olive with a koa rim. Both are oiled and buffed.

    As I've said in other threads, your potpourri pots are a step (or two) above any others I've seen. Great work, Curt.

    Certainly the inlay of a darker wood ring sets your work apart, very nice!

    Curt, potpourri pots are always very nice, I made a couple of potpourri pots in the past too.
    Your potpourri pots are looking great, so fill them with potpourri and put them on a nice place in your livingroom, very nice smell!!
    Well done.

    I really like the Russian olive, Curt.

    My favorite is the shorter pot but the wood on the taller piece is absolutely gorgeous.

    You have taken potpourri pots to a higher level. These are wonderful decorative items.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Curt, I really like both, but the taller one is unlike one I've seen before. Well Done!
