Probably 10 years ago my wife got me this kit for Christmas, but I didn’t have the necessary 1 1/16” forstner bit and extension so I put it off and away. After the recent shop cleaning I found it again and went ahead and ordered the bit and extension.

Salt shaker is maple with walnut for the celtic knot and band, the pepper shaker is walnut with maple as the knot and band.

Cheers.

Nice job even if it did take years.

I have made many pepper mills and I always wondered why they use such a relatively odd sizes for grinder hole. Probably to sell more drill bits. I have occasionally used large inexpensive spade bits and ground them to the diameter needed. I pre-drilled a guide hole for the tip of the spade bit which helped keep it going straight.

Excellent job.
I’m in the same predicament and going on 4 years the project has been sidelined. Did you glue up the maple and walnut shakers with 1” boards? One of my stumbling blocks is 2 1/2” stock to turn the shakers.

The maple is a solid block cut from a 12/4 board I had.

The Walnut was glued up from two book matched 8/4 pieces.

These shakers are 8” and I used a 5” extender, which I think is too short to make the 10” kit.

- Design59

As I said, this kit was purchased about 10 years ago, but it came from Woodcraft: kit 835290.

We did find a similar kit still available from Peachtree (where they also sell the salt shaker parts separately):
