This is a female box elder sea salt cellar with a matching box elder spoon. It is 3 3/4” diameter and 2 5/8” high.
The pivot is a 3/16” brass rod that is epoxied into the lid and it has 2- 3/16” rare earth magnets for a front closure.

The exterior is finished with Danish oil and then 3 step buffed and waxed. The interior is finished with Watco Butcher Block Finish

Cheers, Jim

Very COOL,

I just got turned on to Celtic Salt… better than regular Sea salt…

Better for you…

Don’t have to worry about the TOO MUCH salt stuff…

Tastes good, etc.

Like the special scooper…

Very nice container for the salt…

COOL! :)

good looking cellar but the spoon is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while

I like it. Very different than most salt cellars.

Nice one Jim and a great piece of box elder with a lot of color. I too think the spoon is a charm.
