I might need to get me some wooden dowels for this project. The simplistic look of the finished bottle is amazing and it fits in well with my theme. I don't have many dinners at my place but I could make them for when I eventually do. I could step stencil some simple letters for salt and pepper on the shaker too or just dip the tips in gold.

Ever since my brother retired he has been looking for projects. He loves to work with wood so I am going to show him this. He can make me a pair and stain them with n oak stain and then varnish so they are shiny and maybe make one just a tad taller so I will know that's the pepper.

These are so fun just to look at. They're sleek and stylish, which is a weird thing to say about salt and pepper shakers. Still, I think I need to make these.
