    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 !!!!!!

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

    Very pretty and elegant! 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........

    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 before work.

    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-dipp...ops-c-441.html, which was the first one I looked at when I Googled. I thought they were decently priced.
