Here is another Pepper Mill/Salt Shaker combination. These are proving to be very popular and are fun to make. This one is made from some 2 1/2×2 1/2” Poplar from Lowes.

Turning is pretty easy, you only need two drill bits, a 1 1/2” and a 1 1/16” Forestner bits. I get the kits from Penn State Industries. Hopefully these will sell quickly too. The Pepper Corns go into the bottom and the Salt is stored in the top and shakes out just like any ordinary Salt Shaker.

Very nicely done. I can see how they would be great sellers, especially given the quality of your turning.

Nicely turned Bill. The style alone should make it good seller. I like the compact size of these. I may have to look into them closer.
