Yew salt and pepper shakers. A friend gave me a chunk of yew and this was all I was able to get out of the piece, but I think the grain is stunning.

Beautiful project and suitable for give away. I only must find out where to find that hardware.

Thanks Ivan. They are lined with chrome plated brass tubes with SS tops and soft plastic or rubber stoppers on the bottom from Penn State Industries (pennstateind.com) The tube and top cap are epoxied in place.

Thanks Dave. I had never seen Yew before and probably wouldn’t have ever considered using it if my friend hadn’t introduced me to it.

Nice! And the curve in the shakers helps accentuate the movement of the grain.

Thanks Lew. I’m so glad that I was introduced to Yew and hope that I can score some more sometime.

i love yew wood. Of course being a dedicated student of the longbow, I may be a little biased in my opinion. The little pin knots it frequently has and the colour is stunning. It darkens with age and will look even more amazing as it progresses. I’d like to get a yew handled straight razor.
