Made 18 marshmallow shooters, 5 pair of salt shakers/pepper grinders and my first cutting board for this past Christmas as presents.
The marshmallow shooters got away with out photos but were similar to this earlier project – . The salt shakers were maple and the pepper grinders were mahogany with a blo and wax finish. The cutting board is made from maple, walnut and padauk with mineral oil finish.
My turning skills improved with the repetition on the salt n pepper units. I learned a lot making the cutting board especially the glue ups. The final 13” square size seemed much smaller until it was assembled. The paduak borad looked orange until the mineral oil was applied. Then it turned a nice dark shade of red looking much like the wall color we have in our kitchen.
