Two more Woodsmith potpourri boxes I made for my nephews’ wives for Christmas. Red Oak with Poplar lids & Purple Heart feet & miter keys. I finished the oak with Danish Oil & stained the poplar dark Walnut. Topped all off with 3 coats of Min-wax satin spray finish Nothing Fancy but a fun project. Thanks for looking. Dean

Nice job Dean, I bet the ladies were really glad to get them. Where did you locate the insets for the tops?

Thanks guys.
Les I got the pewter inserts online at Craft Supplies U.S.A. Very reasonable price & good people to deal with.
