Nice Barb,
I live in big leaf maple country and it is one of my all time favourites.
These have lovely grain and you’ve done a great job on the finish.

That finish really makes the grain pop! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful set!

Two questions: Where did you get the metal tops for the shakers? How do you fill the shakers?

Thanks for sharing,
