Default UV - texture HELP

Hi
how can i create a perfect texture and UV for this model ?
Itīs a simples model.

I was learning about modeling and now iīm moving to the textures...

I know a little bit about Setting UVs and i can create one for it (just donīt know the best way), but what i didnīt learn yet is how to make the textures "flow" and be continuous / seamless.

I would like to understand the theory of unwrapping polygons.

I also have saw somethings about baking texture but donīt know what if this is the way.

When i UV this model i can texture 3 parts but i donīt know how to make them connect to the other faces.

Here is a link to a site which, to me, was very helpful in understanding UV mapping with polygons.

Hope this helps.

Thanks RockyMills_01
i already saw this tutorial. Itīs good but doesnīt cover the seamless texturing. The texture of the top doesnīt really connect to the cylindrical shape.
