Due to having severely high prices, a local bakery went out of business. He had some really neat stuff – giant bakeware that I didn’t get a chance to look at, some giant mixers. Really neat. But he had 1 gallon and 2 gallon cookie jars. At 5 bucks, I couldn’t pass up the 1 gallon jar. To my dissatisfaction, the jar had a large chip in the lid, and since it’s going to sit on my desk tantalizing clients with candy, I couldn’t have any defects in it. So I turned one, why not?
The base of the lid is made of walnut, and the little knob up there is a piece of oak. Several board feet of walnut is a LOT for a 5 dollar cookie jar; however, I am extremely happy with it, and my dad is all jealous now. He has the same cookie jar, with a glass lid! :D
Edit: Added some color. Enjoy!
