My first attempt at woodturning. I call this my salt bowl. It has a barrel nut holding the lid on and rare-earth magnets securing it closed. It is finished with food-safe oil.

Congrats. You’ll find turning to be very addictive! :)

Nice work on your first turning.
I have made similar “salt cellars”. Family and friends who like to cook have kept me busy making them when they see the first one I made for my wife so be prepared to make more.
You can check my projects to view the design I use. The original idea came from Wood Turning magazine. I don’t recall the specific issue. Most hardware stores carry 3/16” brass rids and matching brass tubing for the pivot.
If you need any info let me know.
