Wooden tops for Mason jars … turned out of red oak. We glue the metal band into the wooden top and use it with the metal lid.

COOL idea…

At first, I thought they were top that you used a string and spun them on the floor… I was wondering how the Mason Jars fit in… :) Then, I saw what what you were doing! COOL application!

Nice. Is the knob turned seperate then fixed. Or is the whole top one piece turned?

So nice and natural. I bet it looks very good with glass jar.

- MustacheMike

Yes … the knob is turned separate from the top. I use a short length of 1/4” dowel as a tenon and drill a 1/4” hole in the top. When the glue is dry, I just sand the tenon off flush with the underside of the top. The tops are turned from 4/4 flat stock.

I wouldn’t pull your ‘stache!

I just love this project, for it can be done on the lathe, router and jigs or CNC. I did some of the math work for the Bottom side- It works for me, using standard size Mason jar lids. Can anyone offer advice on how to secure the lid into the pocket- I am leaning to epoxy? As for the top- ideas are endless.
