my second “attempt” at making a lidded jar.went pretty well until the end when what i thought was a good friction fit of the jar to the lid.i was finishing the bottom and well it went flying breaking the lip off the lid.lucky there was enough to work with and i was able to turn it down and get a good lid.lesson learned.this was made from mahogany.3-3/4” H X 5” D.rings are black jel stain,finished with 3 coats arm r seal semi gloss.knob was an old cabinet knob i painted satin black.

Sweet work Pottz!
Turning lidded jars is addictive. Ask me how I know.
Keep up the great work.

Good recovery from the slip. Looks great.

The rings were a good decoration on a wood that doesn’t have much grain character to begin with.

While I realize it isn’t the same scale, the look totally reminds me of the cookie jar we had when I was a little kid. That’s a good thing – oatmeal with raisins, peanut butter with the hershey kiss on top, chocolate chip, sugar cookies. Yum!!!!

BTW – I’m finally getting serious about setting up the lathe so I can try some stuff like this. When I am so far down the rabbit hole I can’t see to get out, I’ll blame you, of course ;+)

Great little bowl Pottz, the rings and the lid look amazing. You had a good recovery, not seeing anything that looks off. Well done. Now you hooked on lids. Pressure fits are a little time consuming, to get it just right, and I worry about the finish sticking.
