I got the idea to make these salt and pepper shakers from garagewoodworks and I thought it would be a great project for a beginning woodworker. Made from walnut and maple and with a food-safe finish on them, they turned out great. I decided to try and make two different sizes, a tall, and a short. I think the shorter one is easier to handle, but the taller one holds more salt (or pepper). On the tall shaker, I used a roundover bit to round the edges, the the shorter shaker has chamfers on its edges. On the shorter one, I also cut a cove profile on two of the sides. I think the cove profile wasn’t the best, but it was fun trying out different router bits. Thanks garagewoodworks for giving me the idea!

Nicework, the relief chamfer is a unique detail.
