Buy her a staple gun and paint brush! You can never have too many frames and supers ready to go.

The jars came from a local honey bee supply place.
She's waiting for the heat shrink wrap to arrive for the tops.

Very attractive packaging, a big :thumbsup: !!!!!!

The only downside to your spouse getting involved in your hobby it that they then get some idea of what you are spending! :shock: :???: :club:

Very pretty and elegant!:thumbsup: What size are those jars? 8 oz?

I've had several cases of the 1 lb size for a couple years now. They're still safely packed away in the original boxes. If the weather continues like it has been for the last 3-4 years----the jars will continue to stay "safely" packed away---and empty---until, oh, 2050 or 2052 give or take a few years........:| :grin:

Those look good, sometimes the other half helps on their type of things. For example my wife picks out what I wear every day since I don't have uniforms any more. Got tired of " your not going to wear that " Just what I need the fashion police at seven am :mrgreen: before work.

YO, make money at Honey? I get a lot of work. My wife gets money for it. Isn't that how it is supposed to work? I'm thinkin I didn't get told the whole story or something.

OOOOh...very nice and professional with a personal touch. I have strongly considered using jars after seeing folks on here like Perry using them. I appreciate using plastic bottles for the pour-ability but I like the old fashioned look of jars. Some folks may be concerned about the plastic.

As for dipping the honey, I am a woodturner also and considered making my own. However, I have found sites where they can be purchased much cheaper. I found this site, http://www.craftparts.com/honey-dippers-wood-scoops-c-441.html, which was the first one I looked at when I Googled. I thought they were decently priced.
