DIY Wooden Lid/Seat for Umbrella Can?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I have been looking for a metal or plastic umbrella can (or similarly, any tall bins up to 16" high) that can be converted to a seat when not in use. I can't seem to find such a product on the internet. Therefore, I am thinking of using a metal/plastic cylinder can (e.g. the one in the picture by Container Store), but I have no clue where to find the appropriate lid (e.g. a wooden lid). Any DIY solutions?
