Here’s some salt and pepper shakers I made for Christmas. Walnut, Maple, Purple heart and Sycamore. Oh and the 1 set contains a mystery wood I’m not even sure where it came from. All finished with mineral oil.

phijo, Welcome to LumberJocks. Nice looking sets. Did you just glue up and then drill out? Like to make a couple of sets myself.

Nice job. I like the contrast between the different wood.

They are really pretty shakers. Like the cool shape and the attractive mix of woods. Great job!
