Where did you get the metal head pieces from? I have been looking for them, but havent found them. and how did you “thread” the top to screw the heads on? beautiful shakers!

Thanks everyone for the great comments.These are Two inch long by one inch diameter salt and pepper inserts with screw tops from woodturnerscatalog.com . Item 050-7050 .Only problem with these were the holes in tops were too small had to be enlarged a little with a drill bit to get salt and pepper to come out better.

Have your say...
