  1. Salt Cellars

    I cleaned the grease out of the grease boxes, added salt, and gave them as gifts this year. These are just bandsaw boxes made out of lacewood and maple. Finished with shellac. Nice way to keep the dog hair out of the salt.
  2. Salt Cellar

    This is a box elder salt cellar that I made from scraps laying on the bench. It is box elder with walnut corner strips. It is 3 3/4" Diameter and 2 3/4" high finished with Danish oil all over and then coated with clear gloss lacquer on the outside. I also made a little spoon with the scraps...
  3. Salt Cellar from Sycamore

    Simple salt cellar made from a piece of sycamore. Based on past experience, I made the lid with a very slight overhang so it's easier to grab and remove while cooking. Also made the interior bottom nearly spherical to make it easy to pinch out that last bit of salt. Finished with General...

  5. Sea Salt Cellar #3

    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...
  6. Salt cellar

    Disney themed salt cellar made from cherry, accented with epoxy, sanded and finished with satin lacquer. I used forstner bits; the bottoms would have been nicer if I used a special router bit but I don't own one. Perfection Paralyzes. To center the Mickey heads I drilled a pilot hole through...
  7. Walnut Salt Cellar

    Sorry about the terrible photo quality. I made this for my sister-in-law awhile ago and thought I had taken better pictures before giving it to her. Made from a chunk of figured walnut left over from another project. Finished with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal.
  8. Magnetic Catch Salt Cellars

    These are among my favorite boxes to use because of the top on the brass pin pivot and the magnetic catch. These were my first two attempts and I ran into some problems with both of them. The first is from Sycamore, which I love; but I once again had the problem of measuring once instead of...
  9. Salt Cellar

    This is a salt cellar based on the wood whisperer's video. this was a fun and easy project. I had a stack of 4/4 cherry cutoffs all 10" long so I glued them together in a big stack. I used a 3-1/8" forstner bit to drill the holes, much easier than all the routing. I glued a dowel in the bottom...
  10. Hex Nut Swivel Lid

    I wanted to build a salt cellar box with a swivel lid, but didn't want to see any evidence of the swivel mechanism. My solution was to embed a hex nut in the lid, and a bolt in the box, both secured with epoxy. Here's the write up I did, showing the build process and descriptions:
  11. Salt Cellar - bubinga

    I saw this design on TWW and decided to try it. We really like using sea salt flakes at the table, and taking a pinch out of a salt cellar makes a lot more sense than a salt grinder. I cut a solid bubinga bowl blank on the bandsaw with the table tilted at an angle. Then after slicing the lid...

  13. Marketplace Classifieds
    I am selling for a friend an older Rockwell tablesaw. I know the history of it as far back as the mid 80's. In the mid 80's a retired guy started a woodworking business out of his garage and the saw was one of the purchases. He used it for 3 years and and then became ill and stopped the...
  14. Hand Tools
    Hi Folks, There is something that has been troubling me for sometime now so I thought I would put it out there and have some feedback….?? It is about PLASTIC handles on tools, specifically Hand Saws & Planes. First of all before anyone calls the Woodworking Police let me state my preferences...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    <div>http://rd.revolvermaps.com/f/g.swf Large Visitor Globe</div> Certain classic car colors have become indelibly associated with either an era or a particular car. During the muscle car era of the '60s, bright shades that looked like they came straight from a roll of Life Savers were the...
  16. Joinery
    Fellow Lumberjocks - First, thanks for all the great advice I've received and project inspiration I've gathered from hanging out on this site. I'm a little behind in posting some of my own projects, and I'll try to remedy that soon. I'm building a hard maple table top for a fly fishing...
