I saved those plastic jar covers from being thrown away. I made them of walnut, oak and maple, on lathe. Finish wood oil. Dimensions 60mm diameter, 20mm high. I drilled hole with forstner drill bit on lathe, than widen it up with lathe chisel to size. Finished outside shape on lathe chuck. I glued plastic covers with two component epoxy glue.

This is a cool idea Ivan. I do this too and fill the jars and give them to friends as gifts.
