Cooking Spice Jar

Ok.. So I like to cook. Yes I admit it.. I thought it would be neat to make a spice jar that you can take a pinch or two from and season your food.

The lid pivots on a small pin and seals up nicely. It is maple and walnut with a center indent for your thumb to open the lid….

Two in one is a great idea.
I made some salt cellars on a similar design. Two small rare earth magnets (3/16 inch) recessed one in the base and one in lid opposite the hinge help keep the lid closed. Be sure the magnets are magnetically aligned when you install them or they will have the opposite affect of pushing the lid open.
Also brass pins with brass sleeves stand up to use better than wood. Brass rod 3/16” and matching tubing is available at most home repair centers. I put the tubing in the base for the pivot and fix the rod in the lid with super glue.

Mine are all wood. dowels and top are glued. Space between top and bottom dowel are free to rotate. Also made a few of these out of Oak. Also made three in one, same principle.

Cool spice jar! Like the 2 in 1 concept, perfect for salt and pepper. Like the pivoting lid. Great job!
