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!!!


Unique & Gorgeous Pecan Wood Jar


This jar is definitely uniquely shaped.  Straight sides with a nice flare at the base.  What could be better?  Straight sides on the inside, that’s what.  And you have it here with a flat bottom.  Please don’t ask for more on this one because I don’t have a clue as to what else to add.  OK?  All wood was sealed with a food grade walnut oil, taking 2 coats.  Then after sanding it all again it the jar was finished with a walnut oil and shellac mixture.  Using a combination like this gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The base diameter is 7” with the lip diameter being at 6”.  The total height is 5” with the vessel height being 3 ¼”.  The vessel depth is 2 ¼” and the volume came to 4 cups.  Load this jar up with nuts or candies.  I am sure there are all kinds of tasty treats you might come up with.  Or, use it as a jar to hold all kinds of treasures like jewelry.  16Aug19  BXP102  $42.50  Free standard shipping within Continental United States.  All other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.


Elegant Pecan Wood Pedestal Jar


There is no doubt that this lovely pecan jar is elegant.  Clean yet simple lines highly define it.  Add to that the outstanding natural color of the wood adding in heaps of spalting, you gotta say WOW!  You need to also add a bit of knot holes and worm holes to it as well.  That gives a nice rustic and warm feeling to the jar.  Fill it with pistachios, or other nuts or even candies.  Lots of other tasty treats will fit in this jar that hold 3 cups.  You must also consider that the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Not sure just how many coats of the finish were applied as all was done with it spinning on the lathe.  But using a combination such as that gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter is 6 ½” with a total height of 8 ½”.  The base diameter is 3 ¾” and the depth of the vessel is 2 ½”.  You know that if you have this jar sitting on your table or desk, someone is gonna ask about it.  13Feb19  BXP96  $40.00 and free shipping within Continental United States.


Flared 4 Sided Pecan Wood Jar


You have to admit this is an amazing and unusual shaped jar.  Not every person is gonna have one of these.  But, after seeing a lot of people are going to want one.  Turned from beautiful pecan wood that naturally shows you wonders of Mamma Nature.  You have for rustic appearances worm holes, spalting and even a couple of rough spots that would not sand out.  The lid has a little wiggle room to allow for the wood swelling due to high humidity.  The total height is 4 ½”, the length is 7” and the width is 6 ½”.  As you might have noticed the sides are not exactly even.  I decided to leave that alone as it adds to the handcrafted look.  The vessel depth is 2 ¼” and the volume is 2 cups.  That is a a very large handful and more of pistachios.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination such as that gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  A nice addition to any rustic wood working aficionado’s collection.  18Jan19  BXP95  $40.00 and free shipping within Continental United States.


The Ultimate Candy Jar


This is without a doubt what I would consider the ultimate in candy jars.  After all it was turned from beautiful pecan wood.  You just ain’t gonna get much better than that.  There were some cracks that did not go all the way through so I filled some with natural dust and clear glue and others with coffee grounds and even some powered copper.  All these combined with the natural colors of the wood make this something to behold.  Just picture this sitting on your table or desk full of your favorite treats.  It will hold 2 ½ cups of them so go ahead and tease the other folks around you with it.  The diameter is 9” and the inside diameter is 4”.  The total height is 4” and the vessel depth is 2 ½”.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with straight shellac with some of it rubbed in by hand and then buffed.  This combination gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  21Mar17  BXP77  $35.00 and $15.00 S&H
