Had some free time between projects, so I made this saltbox today from Bolivian Rosewood and American Elm. I used a 3-3/8 diameter forstner bit to drill out the inside and I cut the shape on the band saw. Himalayan salt included.

Nice, simple but elegant in it’s design.

Great project and using two contrasting woods was a great idea.

Thanks all for the comments.
Randy;I took a 1/2 hardwood dowel and counter bored a 1/2×1” hole and glued it to the base and I made a button top out of the bolivian rosewood and counter bored a 1/2×1/4 deep hole and glued that to the top of the dowel.

Well executed. I love the combination of the Rosewood and Elm. Gotta love anything that holds salt My Doctor wishes I wasn’t so fond of salt – but I’m getting better :-)
