When you talk about Pallet wood, Heres what I make out of them. These are a few I had left over that are odd balls. The saecond pair is one set of the original sets I made for them. When I first started Making them, I used some lumber that my Dad and Uncle tore out of the old School House that they went to. My Uncle bought the property and the building, and made a beautiful log cabin on the spot, but before he would give me any of the old wood, I had to promise that I would make all the Family, something that They would have from the old school building.

I have sence started useing Pallet wood. they are truely a kitchen keep sake.

yes Dick, but is that the seasoning FOR deer, or is that what’s In the shaker?... I mean the S&P are clearly labeled ;)

always nice to see wood reused in any project, especially something with a family connection.

That was great use of the wood, the image of the deer is really nice looking as well as the contrasting wood on the ends.

Nice! How do you add the salt? Do you have a hole in the bottom or does the top come off?

I forgot to add all the specs. and to tell you all about these. They average 4-1/2” tall and 1-1/2 – 2” square with a double hole in the bottom with a rubber cork so that you can take them off easier. I tried the cork corks but when you try and remove them they tend to fall apart. I made these with white oak, maple and pine wood. I Love to just get into my shop wether it be a shed, garage, or even my shop I had and just find a piece of wood and start making difference peice out of my head. Once I have all the measurements I than draw them out and put all the measurements down then take it home and prduce a print of the item. many items has come out of this way and I assure you that I feel many more will come out again. Thank all of you ofr all your comments and support you have given me over the past year, and There is never a finer group than the LumberJocks. I am proud to say I am a member. Your frind and fellow LJ Jim
