Maple and Walnut.

The lid is actually a topper for candles.

In fact all my Potpourii lids are these. I think they are much better quality than others I’ve seen. $10 for a lid is a bit much for me, so I always look for sales. Through their site and others.

Nice work. I keep thinking about adding a contrasting band to some of my turnings but never seem to get around to it.

Les…. I actually didn’t think I had enough depth with the maple so I decided to add a couple pieces. One day time for the glue up.
