Beautiful shakers!
They are definitely phallic in their shape, they look like sex toys not salt and pepper shakers
Glad to see I'm not the only one who thought so... think its the tip that makes it. A few years ago i was teaching woodshop (or slöjd as we call it) When we started using the turner in the fifth grade one of the lads wanted to make "a present for his mom" :-)
YOU GUYS SHOULD GET YOUR MINDS OUT OF THE GUTTER. THE BEAUTY OF THESE SHAKERS LIES IN THE CHOICE OF THE WOODS, NOT THE SHAPE.I SUPPOSE IF YOU WOULD MAKE SOME OF THESE, YOU WOULD PROBABLY MODEL THEM AFTER YOURSELF IN FRONT OF A MIRROR SEND THEM TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND!!! PERSONALLY, I THINK THEY ARE AWESOME!!!
hahaha they are definitely phallic, but I think they look like salt and pepper shakers just as well
oilpaint: Well, It's obviously your mind and how you think, I for one know the difference between a salt and pepper shaker and a sex toy, you don't. i suggest taking a closer look or wear your glasses.
Would you be able to post more pics on gluing for more than one ring?<br>
Beautiful job but what did you do to use as caps for the spices? rubber stoppers on the bottom?? I'm a builder and haven't gotten the courage to try turning yet but after seeing this I am seriously thinking about getting a starter lathe. Any suggestions on one for me?
these shakers are awesome! but I would like to see some more detailed instructions
&nbsp;I agree
THUD! (jaw drops onto the floor)

looks like it would make a nice knife handle but i like stacked leather (could i use this for a steampunk bike grip?)
wow those are beautifull.... do you sell them? looks like you have a neat little business going. if I had a lathe i would prob try. thanks for sharing .
xxgemini: Thank you for your comment, Yes I do sell them and have been doing so for 20 yrs.
Not entirely clear on how this is an Instructable, as it doesn't give instructions beyond cutting and gluing some blocks of wood. Also, have you looked into the toxicity of Yew wood? I really wouldn't recommend its use in anything that's going to hold a food product.
pipeski: I do realise the toxicity of some woods, I have been working with all types of wood for 40 yrs, providing it is sealed well enough I have never had any problems or come backs. I will see if I can add some more pics for you later.
