    Salt box 2 and lidded box

    These were fun! The salt box is English walnut and has rare earth mag's in top and lip to snap together with a .125 x 1" spring pin as the hinge. About 4.5x3, enough to get your hand in there and get a good pinch. Finished in Beeswax and nothing inside. Lidded box is ebay American elm, about 5x2, no finish yet and inside isn't done, but I was real happy to get this one right from the start. Comments and suggestions please!!

    Is this something like the Emperor's new clothes because I just don't see it?

    They look great - esp. the salt box, which I have on my 'to do' list!

    Both look nice to me, Jim. I may have to try a few salt boxes to see how they sell.

    They look great Jim thanks for showing them. I agree I need to get going, and Vaughn I do think they should sell well; back to nature and all.

    Okay, I had to look it up. It's for holding Kosher Salt (generally). And this was an old way of keeping salt. I've only really know the salt shaker and Mortons blue box of salt. Please forgive me.
