Well, I started out with a couple of antique salt and pepper shakers from the thrift store. Wood is all beetle kill pine. Napkin holder is slab wood from a local sawmill. I leveled the base with a small router planer graciously passed to me from a good friend and neighbor, Thank You, Ted. Everything is doweled and glued. I used a natural grain enhancing stain and three coats of poly. I think it came out pretty well and can’t wait to get started on the next one.

Great job. It looks like it would, fit into the middle of the table in a log cabin just fine.
