These were made to order. My instructions were to make acorn shaped salt and pepper shakers. I hollowed the blanks with a forstner bit, shaped then on the lathe and finished with lacquer and wax. A cork on the bottom holds the salt or pepper in.

The customer was happy.

Wiser1934, the dimensions are 2 3/8 high X 1 5/8 wide, but shorter and fatter ones look good too. I used a forstner bit that would work with the corks I bought, I think it was 5/8”

I have a couple more pics at my FB page.
