I had been thinking of making these for quite some time. I did not like them at first but after they were finished, they kinda grew on me. They are made of my favorite woods, Walnut and cherry. Hope you guys like them.

Great idea for potpourri and nice looking boxes for them. I may have to try this some time with scraps.

Great “boxes”. I like the way you did the air holes. And great choice of woods.

Keep it up.

Leith those are some really nice looking boxes, but I am equally impressed with your phtograpic talent. Well done on both accounts. I look forward to see more of your work.
