Potpourri Box made from a leftover scrap of claro walnut from a gunstock blank.
Made for my MIL for her birthday.
Lid is cast pewter from Craft Supplies USA.
It is around 41/2” in diameter.
Finished with Behlen’s woodturner’s finish.
After it was nearly complete I turned it over and attached it to a faceplate with rubber fingers to hold it.
Just as I finished the bottom it came loose and launched across the room cracking it and damaging the finish.
I was able to pry it open enough to put some CA in the crack and remounted it on the lathe and refinished it.
The crack is nearly hidden.
