Description of work

This honey pot is based on an old beehive design. A standard 1lb (454g) honey jar fits inside the pot. Rather than having a lid at the top, this pot actually has a base (the bottom bead), and then the rest lifts off, allowing access to the honey jar.

The pot is finished with a triple wax system - rouge, white diamond, and finally high polish in carnauba wax.
