A set of salt and pepper shakers about 4” high, from apricot and an inset of Dymondwood (compressed, dyed veneers). They aren’t a perfect match, but I’m hoping they’ll be good enough to give family for Christmas! Watco oil finish; the salt/pepper kit is from Lee Valley Tools, a plastic vial to insert and an aluminum screw-on cap.
Wishing all the LumberJocks a Very Merry Christmas!!

Very nice Barbs. I thought SALT and PEPER was supposed to be different so you could tell them apart. The diamond wood gives them an extra POP. I am sure the recipiant will love them.

Keep it up.

Thank you for the comments; Scrappy, one screw-on top has a single hole, the other has three small holes…to tell them apart. And I hope the recipient loves them!
