Potpourri holders can be almost any shape, but are more commonly a shallow bowl. They have tops which allow the fragrance but not the bits to escape. So, this can be either a 1 or 2 piece project.
You could turn just the bottom vessel and then use a manufactured lid or you can make both pieces. I've seen lids turned then pierced and turned with a lattice effect. Both are very stunning and popular!
|Turning a Potpourri Jar Lid|
By: Joel Crabbe
In this tutorial, Joel shows us how to use a store bought jar and convert it into a new Potpourri jar. This is a good beginners project and one which can be used for potpourri or even a candy jar.
|Turning a square potpourri container|
By: Bob Hamilton
In Bob's new photo tutorial, he uses many of the same clever techniques that he used in his round potpourri container. But this time, he leaves the corners to make a square container.
The results of this project are stunning and will have many people thinking, "How did he do that?"...
|Turning a round potpourri container|
By: Bob Hamilton
In this wonderful photo tutorial, Bob shows how he makes a laminated potpourri container. It is designed to use a metal lid and many of the wood turning catalogs now sell various types.
In this project, Bob uses close-up photography to ensure that you understand each step along the way. So, this project is suitable for beginners too!
