Hi Guys. This is my first post and I am brand new to the forum and to woodworking. I keep finding myself working with wood and want to develop my knowledge and skill, so I thought I'd join the community. Thanks for bringing this forum to life. It's a great resource.
I would like to make a round wooden lid out of 5/8" wood for a small pot. I would like it to be 2-5/8" diameter (same as the pot so it sits on top) with 1/4" more cut away around the bottom half (so that the bottom of the lid sits snug in the jar mouth.) I have one for another jar, and I would like to replicate it almost exactly. I am linking pictures to that lid. You can see in the picture that the lid I have has a space cut out for a rubber gasket. I am not sure I will need to do that, but possibly.
I would appreciate any suggestions on the best tools for this project. I am not very experienced with most saws, routers, etc., but excited to learn.
I have access to a tool library in our neighborhood that has an awesome selection. Thanks in advance and again and happy to be here!
