A figured maple box for sea salt, with spoon.
I have some figured maple slab edge cuttings and this is the result.
Finished with Chatham’s butcher block beeswax mix.

Nice job on your salt box. What do you use it for? Does it replace a salt shaker.

Cooking with sea salt, use the spoon to add salt to soup, stews and anything that needs a little salt.
There is a great variety of sea salts, white, grey. pink, even black, also with herbs added.
