These two shakers were turned from the same block of figured Bigleaf Maple (Acer macrophylla)
. Their character differences deserve recognition, so I have dubbed this pair "Plain and Fancy". "Plain" has seven holes, "Fancy" has five. They are stoppered with rubber bungs in the bottom. The inside is unfinished.
Dimensions: 4.0" high x 2.3" diameter
If the outsides get sticky, as shakers do, wipe them with a damp cloth and dry with a towel. The shakers can be also be washed by hand with warm soapy water, but please don't let them soak. Rinse well, and allow to air dry for a day or two, with the stoppers removed, before refilling.
Tip: In humid climates, a teaspoon of raw rice in the salt shaker will help keep the salt flowing smoothly.
