After a country ride to our favorite BBQ place we saw that they had these salt-n- pepper shaker and paper towel holders setting on top of their tables which looked to be made out of post cedar.

My dad wanted one and asked if I would be able to make one, I told him sure that shouldn’t be a problem and I already had these slices of ash sitting outside on the ground.

The wood I used is spalted Arizona Ash and this is the outcome.

Easy, Attractive, Functional, and specifically requested by the recipient – can’t get any better than that. Great job. Hmmm… this would look good at my sister’s lake cabin…her birthday is next week…hmmm.

Thanks for posting

When you said salt and pepper shakers earlier, this is not what I visualized. Great idea and take on an old subject. Bet your dad will love it.

Thanks for all the great comments, I was wondering how it would go over. I tried searching for remakes of this design via google and none were found except what we saw at the BBQ place.
