My girlfriend has taken up candle making and I recently bought a bunch of rocks glasses:
Our goal is to give some candles as gifts so I thought it would be nice to make wooden lids for these glasses. My thought is to cut a circle out of wood and then either route out the inside leaving just lip perimeter of the original wood depth, or just route out a ring to slip onto the top of the glass.
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on the proper tool(s) for this project. I thought I could possibly make a circle cutting jig for my router, but with a 3” diameter of the glass, I wonder if that’s possible. I thought about using a hole saw and cleaning up the piece once cut, but haven’t yet attempted this.
All suggestions/advice are very appreciated, as I’m an amateur at woodworking, and this is my first post on this forum.
Here are a few examples of what I’d like to create:
