Tis the Season

Tis the Season

Today I finished my second salt and pepper shaker set. The first one I made has been used on my table for five years. It is a simple box with a trapezoidal piece of wood that closes in the bottom after it is filled.

This design utilizes a piece of ebony that slides in and out to open the shakers. There is a hole in the bottom of the shakers that allows the ebony to be pushed out with a pen or dowel, then it is slid back to close the shaker. The ebony pieces are held in place by friction. The woods I used are curly maple and walnut. Both shakers have ebony closures.
