If you decide to use the mason jars to store your finish, here’s a suggestion, and one that I’ve used for years. Take the rubber seal (the one under the lid) off with a knife, small chizel, etc. Put a little dab (not much) of petroleum jelly on the threads, put the lid on, and screw and unscrew it a few times to spread the jelly on the threads. The r.s has a tendecy to get “mushy” and gummy. Once it’s gone, you should be ok.
Shake the jar pretty often, and keep it stirred. Hopefully it’ll last longer.
