This is my take on the mystery salt shaker that was featured in the latest Woodturning Design mag. A pretty simple and fun item to make and could be a good gift giver. The only thing I ended up changing was the size of the hole in the funnel. The original 1/8 hole seemed to put out too much salt. I plugged that hole and redrilled to 1/16 and that seems better to me. I guess it would depend on ones taste as far as how much salt is too much. If you use this as a pepper shaker you would probably need the larger hole. The wood is maple with just a beeswax finish on it.
