This is a four-compartment salt cellar as a gift for my mom and step-dad. They have a collection of salts, and what better way to present your options than a spread in the middle of the table? The lid is not hinged, so that it is accessible from any angle, and is fit loosely so that it is not too fidgety to replace.
It was made entirely with hand tools, of 2 kinds of mahogany (Honduran and African, I believe!), and finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. The sides are quarter sawn. The handle is a long strip that is angled in slightly, so it is deceptively easy to grab.
