This project was a down and dirty quick show case of the lathe and turning. I had a friend over and wanted to see a project completed. I thought a potpourri bowl was a quick introduction to woodturning.

Here’s this weeks video: Potpourri Pot

Thanks

Simple, but really elegant!
That cap is a perfect touch.

Nicely done.
I have had a couple of those medal lids for many years with good intentions to use them but for unknown reasons I never have. Possibly because I don’t know anyone who would use potpourri. I guess I could inlay then into a solid lid.

True… I don’t know anyone that actually uses potpourri anymore. They are more of a shelf decoration.

Great little project there. A nice one for an induction, you may have started something there.

Nicely done! I’ve been wanting to make these myself but due to lockdown I can’t get to my workshop.

Did a quick turning this evening, a knob for a project I am working on. Used a piece of Blood wood, I like the way it cuts on the lathe, and it has a nice looking grain. This is the first time I have used the Bloodwood.

Nicely done. As another idea I made some with stainless liners I found at a surplus store. They can be used with the liquid filled air freshener beads. They were a big hit a gifts.

Bloodwood is very hard and can produce a equally high wood luster. I’m sure it turned out great.

I’m going to have to look into that. Fantastic idea!
