This is the second small bowl with Pewter lid. 10 more to make! Thanks to Lumberjock Bill M for identifying the species “assorted” abreviated MIM otherwise known as Mimosa. Even the guys at the lumber store didn’t know what it was.

Your Potpourri dish looks rally nice with the putter lid. I like the grain and color of the Mimosa wood. Glad you got an answer to your blog question Ben.

Cool potpourri disk. The grain in the wood almost looks too perfect to be real. It’s a winner.
