Once again I saw something that another Jock had put out on site so I took it and ran and came up with this idea. Salt and Pepper shakers made out of maple and purple heart what I had seen was all square so I put my touch to them and put it on a lathe and turned them into what you see. I had fun turning them so have fun giving me your input and coments. They measure 4 inches in height and 1.25 inches in diameter with a .75 inch hole.

Hey, that looks familiar… ;-)
Great work on those. I lack a lathe but I have plans on making more shakers of different styles in the near future. BTW a #8 cork will fit nicely in that bottom hole.
I just love to see projects evolve as Jocks adapt them and put their own touch to them.

Nice looking pieces! The proportions look great and I really like the choice of wood.
