Magic Mushroom Jar

…or other magic stuff if you don’t have any mushrooms to store…

I just finished making a tea-caddy shaped cookie jar style thingy from tiger oak and spalted beech…

It’s about 6 x 6 x 9 inches [16x16x 24 cm] and has a sprinkling of faerie dust in the varnish, more on the inside than on the outside.

The faults are filled with my ‘black opal’ filler and the underside of the lid is painted with gold paint.

It’s my first piece that uses my new logo.
I have no idea what it could be used for … probably not great for foodstuffs as it would be a little difficult to wash out a lot although it is very well varnished inside and out..

Anyway… I’ve just started on my next project which is a wardrobe. For this one I bought some offcuts from a cigar box factory as it’s going to be painted so the boring wood won’t matter much and it saves tons of sawing…

Quite a big thing to make in my small workshop but it’s needed..
