I recently saw a Jay Bates video on making salt and pepper shakers and thought. I DO need a set of those. Yes, these are the thoughts that creep more and more into your head as you age. But I did like them enough to turn out a set this weekend.
The pictures aren’t that great but they are made from goncalo alves, bubinga, and maple. I alternated the tops and bottoms between the two to make it easier to remember what is in each one. Darker is pepper, lighter is, well you get it. I also found some rubber stoppers at HD. I just couldn’t see going through a hundred corks! Not sure what the issue was, maybe extremely hard wood, but this project burned up my 1 1/2” forstner bit. I mean turned it really dark. Probably need to toss it. Anyway, it was a good fast little project. Maybe think about more of these for the holidays. Thanks Jay.
