My Lovely Bride bumped the glass lid of her favorite coarse salt container off the counter and it didn't survive. She was distressed since she uses this when cooking. I happen to strongly support her incredible cooking so this nearly trivial project should pay big dividends!
Some years ago I had some Eastern Red Cedar logs on the sawmill and uncovered this wonderful marbled figure. (This lid is end grain which best shows off the figure.) I was able to reuse the silicone rubber seal from the glass lid.
I used negative rake scrapers and a hand scraper to eliminate most of the sanding except for some 400 and 600 grit. Finish is beeswax melted into the wood with a small heat gun.
