The finish is sanded to 12,000 grit, then Carnauba wax applied with a lathe mounted 3 wheel cloth thingy.

This is a GREAT idea. Thanks for sharing this. I was just wondering yesterday what to do with a bunch of smaller scraps…...now I know. LOVE the hat!

This is really a cool idea. Would be great for giving as a gift. Are the lids glued in? I only ask because I use these for canning and the lids don’t seem to last long. Thanks

DD as I said above the lids are glued in, but I promise not to sneak into your shop and glue them when you’re not looking.

Beautiful work and definitely a great gift idea. Well done thanks for sharing your work.

DoubleDD – perhaps using hot glue for a temporary bond would work. Just a thought -
