This is a gift I made for my mother. It is made from purpleheart and measures 3” tall and 5” in diameter. The finish is polished water varnish. I purchased the potpourri lid from The Woodturners Catalog.

Beautiful design and the finish is awesome …what is water varnish ? Do you have a link to the lid ?
Thank you : )

Believe lee valley sells that lid too. Wonder if there’s a substantial price difference.
