Made out of quarter-sawn sycamore. It holds one jar of jelly and is a gift for Christmas…along with the blackberry jelly. It measures 7” X 4” X 4” and the “tin” is heavy duty aluminum foil that I punched a simple design in. It was tedious to say the least. Finished with Howard’s wax. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Love it! That QS Sycamore is gorgeous, and making a “cupboard” for one jar of jelly is just too funny!
