This is a piece I used to test out my new articulated hollowing tool (http://lumberjocks.com/Slovenian/blog/128681 ) and my 60 degree thread cutter for my Dremel.
The hollower worked out great..so easy to cut around the corner with it. The 60 degree cutter in the Dremel work real good cutting the internal threads, but it did not work good on the external threads where I had to cut up to a shoulder. The screw and washer holding the cutter on the shaft are too big and I cannot get up close enough with it. So I cut the external thread with a regular V bit in the metal lathe and the threads came out terrible. The lid turned on okay but the threads were not pretty at all. I was going to just scrap it, but I turned off all the threads and finished it with a tenon on the lid. It is 4 1/2” diameter and 3 3/4” high
It is made out a piece of real old , dry Juniper and is finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed.

Cheers, Jim

That’s real pretty, Jim. Juniper. Another “oddball” in the realm of things to put on a lathe.
Yeah. I clicked the link. Speaking of jumping through hoops. Do you have a coring system?

There’s always a way to make something look or work right. Nice save Jim. Nice piece of Juniper.

Jim, that old adage about silk purses and porcine ears comes to mind! Great save there Jim.

Thank you all for the nice comments! I hate to throw anything away. It did tell me what I needed to know about those two tools. I have a taller piece of the same log that I will approach differently!!

Hi Mark, do you mean something like a McNaughton system? No I don’t

Hi Bambi. if international postage was not so sky high, I’d send you box full!!

Hi Dave, I remember that song!!!

cheers, Jim

Good work (and good save) Jim!

That is a nice shape and size for a lot of things. I’ve seen small jars of bee wax lip balm selling like hot cakes at crafts fairs, that looks like a great alternative “jar” for a lot of these types of items.
