These Potpourrie Boxes are easy enough to make and make good presents for the ladies.
The darkest one is Queensland walnut (fairly tough wood), the one on the left is Wenge and the other is an unknown burl that came up well with a few coats of wipe on poly.
Just a tip for would be wood turners.
If you hot melt glue a piece of scrap to your nice bit of wood you avoid wasting good wood that normally fits into the chuck.
When you want to separate the waste just hit it for a few seconds in the microwave (while your wife isn’t looking) and presto, works every time. Make sure you put a glass of water in the MV at the same time.
