A couple of Salt Shakers turned on the lathe. These are made from a piece of Sassafras that I’ve been working on for several years now. Bored a 1” hole through bottom for pliug and a 3/4” hole at top for shaker holes. Bought the plugs and shaker cap with holes from Vince Welch at Vince's Wooden Wonders Vince also has some great sandpaper. And no, I have no affiliation with him, I’m just a happy customer.
