Had some scraps and some left over salt shaker parts. Just a glued up blank from various species and a bunch of different sizes. Finished with gloss poly- outside only.

Beautiful piece Lew. I don’t know if you intended it, but the first impression here was that you designed it to appear like a woman standing with her hands clasped in front of her waist. . . . Yes, I’m sure that was your design, and you wanted to see if any of us would notice.
Love it.

Beautiful. I think that is the prettiest salt shaker I have ever seen. Definitely a centerpiece on any table. Very nice job on this.

Nice, Lew, really nice.
You’ve just proven that there is no such thing as scrap wood.

very nice Lew, I hope to get back to woodworking soon, we moved into town and my new shop is no where near as large as my old one, so I have a lot of work reorganizing to do.
