    Unless you don't have a drill and then you would need to purchase one of those. Nuff said.

    But there would be no need to purchase another item, would there?

    Two points:

    1. The paper images need to have a coat of clear polyurethane or something so they will last.

    2. If you want the knobs to stay put, why not screw them onto the lids?

    Really pretty! Nice job. You made me want to do it. I can see mine soon!!! Only thing I would change would be bolting handles on instead of gluing cuz I have a terrible tightening on lids. The handles would be gone soon. lol
