A pair of salt boxes (or “wall salts”, or “salt pigs”) made from oak, rebate and nail construction. The oak was a single 2 foot long oak 2×4, given to each member of our woodworking guild as a build challenge. The bottom was grooved first with a plow plane, to take the base, then it was cut up, rebated for the joints, and nailed with brass nails (to avoid staining the oak). The hinges are shaped into the side, hinging on brass pins (screws with the head cut off).
