« Part 10: Canary wood plate - first time using a glue block Part 11 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 12: Best Turn Thus Far! »

I attempted my first try at simple, yet challenging, salt and pepper dispensers. This was a fun project, even if it did not end perfectly. The salt shaker was made from Ash and the pepper was made from Black Walnut.

The shakers were not the same size in the end and proves I need a lot of practice in duplicating items. I could have spent some time making measurements and getting the shapes a little closer. Live and learn I suppose. In the end, they are functional and look great independently, so is it a failure?

This week’s video: Salt and pepper shakers!

Thanks for posting. I watched the video. I was hoping to see the final assembly. IE how did you attached the metal cap etc.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the watch. The kit has a plastic threaded insert. Simply marred/scratched the plastic, glue and slide into the hole. Not much more to it….. aka: I didn’t capture it. :(

However, i might do that project again for someone as a gift. So keep an eye out for it, promise to capture the glue up.

Thanks again for watching and commenting.

Have your say...
