The start and finish of a pot-pourri bowl made from a piece of a branch given to me by a friend from his Jacaranda tree.
The finish is Ubeaut red dye and clear lacquer.

Thanks guys. The inside is hollow, the wall thickness varies between about 3mm near the top and probably 10mm lower down. it is filled with “pot-pourri” mix which is purchased for the purpose, it seems to consist of things like rose leaves etc with added perfume. The tops are available in many patterns in both Pewter and imitation Pewter. Some time ago I made one from Pine and did a full photo-shoot, I’ll try to find it and make a pdf to post.

a very nice, and timely project… I just learned that mint tea bags (among several other good smelling spices) were a safe and natural ant deterrent… I dare say one of these on the counter would look a lot better than tea bags, cinnamon sticks and cloves scattered in cupboards and on counters. Thanks for the inspiration!... now to just dig a path over to my lathe in my just relocated shop…

I’m touched by all your kind comments guys, thank you. I’ll just post a full photo-shoot in pdf format showing the making of a Pine pot-pourri bowl then I’ll slowdown!

Thank you Grumpy, looking at the very high standard of YOUR work I’m humbled by your kind remarks. Interesting how two people can end up with items for the same purpose, yet approach them differently. I refer to YOUR pot pourri bowl and lathe indexing system. I designed my system out of necessity in order to complete the jewellery stand and will some time post it by lying that it’s made from wood, it isn’t but it’s used when turning WOOD!
