potpourri box from Aussie hardwood finished with several coats of wipe on ploy.
The potpourri lid is metal with lugs so it can either sit flush on the top or can be recessed in.

Nice turning Grumpy, and useful too. I’m sure that it will be enjoyed for years to come. Even Karson, your “old buddy”, will refer to this as a “Great design” in comment #13 when he posts it on 09-30-2018. ;)
