Made this from spalted maple. Holds 2 jam/jelly jars. The jam was made by me and is blackberry and plum. The carrier measures 8”L x 3 1/2”W x 3”H. The handle stands 7” tall and fits the hand perfect for picking it up and moving it. Finished with Howards CB oil and then polished with Howards wax. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Nice job on the carrier, but that wood is outstanding—especially the way your design follows the wood grain!

Jay, your design is very creative. Like the wood pattern, it would look nice in any kitchen.

Beautiful use of the figure in the wood!
Is it just glued up? Any concern with it letting go? I still consider myself a newbie and question whether I’m using a good joint for a project. LJ and your posts have kindled a fire … I hope my day job doesn’t suffer too much! :)
