My sister ask me to make her a seasalt container. This is what I came up with. I took a 2” x 5” piece of bovarian rosewood and bored a 3-3/8 hole with a forstner bit for the container part. I used Makore wood for the cover, sanded to 600 grit, finished with Teak oil and a dip in hot mineral oil/beeswax, polished until smooth. I used a 1/2 dowel for the pivot and carved a cap out of the bovarian rosewood for the top. I tried to sand the top to resemble a seashell,but I was afraid of trying to carve the layers into the top to resemble a seashell. I have not done any wood carving and don’t have the proper tools.
