Here are some segmented potpourri bowls that I made in my shop. I actually made a jig for them first. I cut all of these on my Rigid tablesaw.

The jig has made this so much easier. My advice to anyone that is going to make them is to do it that way.

They are all 12 pieces per layer.

Most of them are mahogony, one is maple and mahogony and one is walnut.
Pic 1 is Mahogony
Pic 2 & 3 are group shots
Pic 4 is maple and mahogony
Pic 5 is mahogony and a thin maple ring I put in for effect.
Pic 6 is walnut.

These are actually my first try at segmented potpourri bowls. I dont think they came out horrible. Now I just need to figure out what to sell them for? ;-)

Thanks for the kind words.

as atchison32 already stated you can get the lids here. Wood turners is where I get them. They have never done me wrong and they are a great bunch of folks.

You can also get them at Penn State Industries
