This salt & pepper shaker kit is made using two contrasting timbers, Cherry and Redwood which are laminated together. The shakers have plastic inserts with screw on chrome lids. The wood when turned, is finished with sanding down through the grits, starting at 240 and finishing with 1000 grade steel wool. Sanding sealer is applied to the outside with a final rub of steel wool. Three coats of EEE paste wax is applied, buffing between coats with a final 2 coats of friction polish which gives a nice luster finish.
