What a timely topic! Here’s a simple “round” jar that would be a nice little gift that you can make easily:

I don’t remember what angle I set my table saw to, but you cut strips at that angle. Then (or before) make a dado in the bottom. Cut a round shape for the bottom, and glue it all together.

There are a couple of ways to figure the angle. First take the circumference you want, C=2X3.14Xradius. Divide that by the width of your wood strips = number of strips.
The second way is to divide the circumference C=360 ° by the number of pieces= angle
