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!!!

I sort of consider this jar a bit of a special treat for everyone.  The is the first piece I have ever turned out of jacaranda wood!  And what beautiful wood it is.  The natural color, the unusual grain pattern make this certainly special.  I just hope the rest of the wood I got in looks this good.  When I first did this jar I had the finial just too danged long.  After three separate opinions, I shortened it.  And am glad that I did.  Looks more balanced now.  The diameter of the jar is 3 ½” with a total height of 5 ¼”.  The vessel height is 3 ½” with a depth of 2 ¾”.  The volume measured at 1 ¼ cup.  The wood was all sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the finishing was done with shellac.  Several coats of both were applied with buffing done with various wood buffing compounds.  Using these materials and methods gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  8Jun22  BXJAC1  $45.00  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.

You gotta admit that this jar is quite elegant.  Besides the beautiful color of the wood another thing that makes it elegant are the simple lines.  Nothing overly fancy, just simple elegance.  No, I am not forgetting the amazing grain patterns.  When I was turning this jar I was thinking it would be just right to hold your personal stash of your favorite nuts or candies.  Another thought was that this would make a really nice gift for a special someone in your life.  Lots of other uses for sure.  The diameter is 5 ½” with a total height of 5”.  The vessel height is 2 ¼” and the depth is 1 ¾”.  The volume measured at 1 ½ cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The both pieces were buffed with tripoli buffing compound.  The finishing was done with shellac.  Then everything was buffed at high speeds.  Using these materials and methods gives the jar a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  21Feb22  BXPOD1  $47.50  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.

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.
