Just got these kits in from PSI today and had to turn one. The wood is Maple. These are great little additions to the table – Salt and Pepper in one place. The top is a Salt Shaker and doubles as the twist mechanism for the Pepper Mill, which is in the bottom. I can’t wait to get back into the shop and make some more – hoping that these will be good sellers.

Nice job Bill, don’t think you need to worry about them selling :)
what sort of price would you normally put on one of these?

Great turning Bill. Nice design too. I would be interested to know how they sell. We are a society of separate shakers. One may be confusing. Hope you sell a lot.

A gr8 idea having both ends, one salt, one pepper. I’ve looked at these and always thought I’d turn a few of these for the kiddos, but, still haven’t got round to it yet. A nice job on this Bill.
