Household items are one of the most functional items that you can make. It's mostly because you will use them all the time. They are also great gifts.
If you make other crafts that get packaged into jars, you can dress them up by adding a wood lid. This will really make it look special and out of the ordinary!
|Turning a Potpourri Jar Lid|
By: Joel Crabbe
In this great photo tutorial, Joel shows us how to make a lid for standard glass jars that we find all around the house. Joel makes it a two-piece lid so that it can either be closed or open as in a potpourri lid.
There are many steps in this process but Joel's great pictures make it easy to follow along! This sure makes a nice gift for the home!
|Making spiral lids|
By: Rick Hutcheson
In this tutorial, Rick shows us both the jig that he's made to turn the spiral lids and the instructions on how to actually turn them.
These spiral lids are very pretty and would look good as trivets and tops to boxes.
|Quick and Easy Threaded Inserts for Urns|
By: Brad Adams
In this project, Brad shows us how he uses ABS plastic threaded inserts on the urns that he turns. By using these plastic threaded pieces, he's able to have a firmly closed top to his urns. Brad's photo's make it easy to understand how to use these easy to find parts for this application!
|Lattice Top Box|
By: Jason Clark
In this wonderful photo tutorial, Jason shows us how he makes a box with a lattice top. To achieve the lattice structure, he turns one side off center using an easy technique that he explains well. Then he re-centers the blank and turns the opposite face. His clear explanation and close-up photography make this a easy to follow and duplicate project.
This lattice technique can also be used for other projects! Imagine a larger trivet...
