This is a lid that I turned for an old glass jar. The lid was first laminated out of Brazilian Cherry and Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Then it was turned, and the metal lid was glued inside (the wood top is basically just a cover for the tin lid). Very quick & easy project, that turned out pretty neat!

Nice lid. Need some candy in there.

Where did you get the jar.

Yes! I have since filled it with Jolly Ranchers…haha. I found the jar in the basement of my grandmother’s farm house. I think it’s fairly old – really thick, solid glass with a slight greenish shade – and at the bottom it reads, “TWO POUND”. Thanks for looking!

Great idea! Would be a great gift for someone filled with homemade jam too
