The pot pourri thing started life as an early segmented vase turning. but it was full of mistakes and I disliked so much it sat in the shop for almost a year while I thought of ways to save it because of the hours invested.
eventually the idea of spliiting it in half to make an oval bowl seemed OK. It was bandsawed vertically in half ,reglued forming an oval, then I fashioned a stand for it to sit in. it now has a new life spared from the woodstove.

The trays were gifts for family and friends.

Neat I dig the bowl, sometimes I do the same thing, keeping things around for long periods of time until I find a new design for it LOL…

The first project is beautiful. That’s why I like woodworking, you can always make something- from trouble.
