    .....it becomes OUR hobby! I guess she didn't approve of my "just save all your old glass jars and I'll put the honey in them" comment lol

    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.

    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.
