These colorful Salt and Pepper Shaker are handmade on the wood lathe. The woods are Sycamore and Mahogany. The cap is stainless steel and there is a rubber stopper rather than a cork plug which will not last. The item size is 3 inches tall and 1 3/4 in diameter. Most importantly, the high gloss finish first offers a protective finish and secondly is food safe.

I design all of my items in my studio in Montvale, NJ USA. Should you purchase from AATurning I guarantee it is an Alan Adler original. I do not sell any third party items.
Care for Wood Items
Keep out of direct sunlight
Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
Do not wash with water, use only a damp cloth
Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore luster. I like beeswax or walnut oil. Mineral Oil is also good.
