Potpourri Vases

Made some potpourri vases with tops had a lot of fun. First attempts only put holes in tops. Discovered get no smell with just holes in tops. Hence holes in sides.

Saved a heap of money not buying pewter lids from vendors.

Very cool, and very clever. Nicely done. Wood lids are better anyway.

Used smallest blade that comes in HF 5 pc HSS saw blade set w/mandrel item #67224, $4.99 and Dremel tool.

Wish had a Zona Razor 3 in one saw set.

I also use drill bits and burrs in electric drill.

Here are examples of drill bits and burrs. Painted ones done with drill bit and work in progress ones used burrs. Of course, need files, lots of, and paper.

Thanks for coments and interest.

Way cool

These are some cleaver works. I very much like the slots in the sides with the spiral effects. You have a great talent.
