I then slid my pipe through my stainless steel lid and put a ring on each side and soldered it with lead free solder and flux. Make sure you rough your copper with some sand paper. If you need pics let me know.

How did you flare the ends?
Did you have to make two wood jigs, one for the coupler and one for the pipe?
Did you solder the underside of the lid as well as top to prevent leaks?
Thanks for the pictures.
