They do get hard to find outside of canning season. I seem to have good luck most of the time at Farm-n-Fleet around here. I'd say the most common size is a quart, but you can get 1/2 pint, pint, and somewhere you can get 2 quart jars, though I've never actually seen them for sale. As Doug suggested, some of the pasta sauce jars can be used. The ones that say "Mason" on them can be actually be used for canning, so regular canning lids fit. Personally, I'd stick with 2-piece lids because I think they seal better.

I got a case of 12 quart-sized widemouths w/ lids at Wally World for $8, but I don't remember what month. Probably late spring or summer.

How do the seals react to soaking in shellac?

lids
Since I usually keep my jars right-side up, I wouldn't know. Why don't you do a test and report back?

Just as an aside - I had poured some Minwax stain into a mason jar and applied a plastic cover (white screw-on) and about 6 mos later the plastic cover had a rather nice lump in it, not unlike a dome. Didn't open it but brought it to the dump's hazardous material section. The stain didn't reach the cover, either.

You don't shake your shellac to stir it, Toddy?

you
Perhaps your definition of "soak" is different from mine, Jacques-ass. Webster's seems to define it as "to immerse in liquid for a period of time" or "to be immersed until thoroughly saturated". To answer your question anyway, even though it doesn't apply, one source I found says the gasket material is latex rubber. So, if you really want to know the answer to your question, look up the solubility of latex in ethanol.

Whatever, jerk. I guess you only like your rudeness in one direction. As my mother would say, you can dish it out, but you can't take it. I didn't notice any pearls of wisdom from you in this thread, by the way.

Well, I didn't mean to step in shit or anything Monsieur Jacques. I just thought that was funny. You can be a real Jacques-ass sometimes. Especially when somebody talks about using poly and Minwhacks on walnut. :)

Would make more sense to put a jummywod veneer over walnut to lighten it up.

Right. Then stain it walnut color so it looks right.

I continue to pray that you're not, secretly knowing that there are those out there who knowingly deface perfectly innocent good hardwoods. <sigh>

Seriously, first, why would you need a Mason jar? All sorts of stuff comes in jars that are thrown away so why not use that type of jar?
Second, the stuff goes bad rather quickly and dissolving it, so why not mix the amount you need instead of a pint, a quart, a half gallon, etc. A variety of jar sizes allows you to select a size close to your estimate of the amount you need for a project. Before you use the jars, measure how much liquid they hold and mark it on them. BTW, lots of jars can use standard canning lids.
