Photo 1: This is the blank ready for mounting on the lathe. I made it by resawing a 5/8" thick slice from a 2" thick butternut board 6" wide. I then glued a 5/8" thick piece of black walnut to the thicker of the two pieces of butternut. The butternut pieces are still oriented the same way they were in the original board. I usually start with boards 3 or 4 feet long, which yield 6 to 8 potpourri containers.
