Nice Job!. For some reason the photos make your shakers look gigantic 8^)

I’m thinking they would go perfectly with a napkin older base…..

What diameter of holes did you drill for the shaker ends?

Thanks Splintergroup!

I agree.. maybe a tray to sit in with napkins in the middle would be cool.

Holes are 1/16th I drilled all the way through for 9 holes on the pepper, but only 5 holes through on salt because it flows faster. other holes are half depth. Inner cavity is 1/12 inch diameter hole inside a 2×2 by 3.5 body.
