Jars & Canisters

In the past I had been putting these jewels in the Boxes section.  I decided as that since I will be expanding the jar and canister pieces that they should have their own page.  So here we go.  The biggest difference between a box and a jar or canister is the size and capacity.  So most likely some of the pieces in the boxes section are probably going to get their name slightly changed and added to this section.  Enjoy!!!

Beside the fact that camphor is a unique smelling aromatic wood, it is also quite beautiful.  Looking at the natural colors and grain pattern make it a desirable wood.  This jar will be perfect in size for hiding change in, stowing some keepsakes and other many uses.  The outer diameter is 3 12” with an inside lip of 2”.  The total height is 5 ¼” with a vessel height of 3 ¾”.  The vessel depth is 3” with a volume of 1 ¼ cup.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then the wood was buffed with tripoli wood buffing compound.  The finishing was done with shellac.  Several coats were rubbed in while spinning at high speeds with a 100% cotton sock.  Using these methods and materials gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  31Oct21  BXCAM1  $35.00  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.

I have not turned a multi sided piece in a while and after acquiring some black cherry I thought it was perfect for the task.  I found it to be a bit interesting to turn as it has some interesting characteristics to it.  Besides the great color, you will find some little natural blemishes in the wood.  All of this combined makes for a great looking piece.  The diameter is 6” with a total height of 3 ¾”.  The vessel height is 1 ¾” with a depth of 1 ¼”.  The volume measured to be 1 cup.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with shellac buffed at relatively high speeds.  Using these methods and materials gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  20Sep21  BXBC1  $40.00  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.

Walnut/Red Oak Jar

I have to admit that I like turning jars of all shapes and sizes.  They simply are fun to turn.  And, at times rather challenging.  When turning one with different kinds of wood, it can be even more of a challenge because different woods behave different ways.  But I think this one primarily out of black walnut with some segments of red oak make a wonderful looking jar.  The outside diameter is 3 ¾” with the inner diameter is 2 ½”.  The total height is 6 ½” and the vessel height is 5”.  The vessel depth is 4” and the volume measures 1 ½ cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then the wood was buffed with a tripoli wood buffing compound.  The finishing was done with several coats shellac applied with a 100% cotton sock while spinning at high speeds.  Using these materials and methods gives this jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  7Nov21  BXSG7  $48.50  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.
