This project turned into a wonderful surprise. I never heard of Gray Box before and this piece was not listed as a burl, so yay… big surprise. Beyond the burl, the wood cut beautifully, and the exposed grain was fantastic.

I started this project thinking I would embellish this bowl with coves, grooves and beads. After seeing the burl, I knew I had to change tactics and leave the natural look alone. I stopped cutting the pedestal and tried to make smooth lines or flat surfaces to showcase the grain.

I collected several wood pieces that are perfect for a potpourri pot and equally a good number of pewter lids. This will not be the last time I turn a potpourri pot, but the wood will be different.
