Salt boxes are also called salt cellars or salt pigs. Whatever the name, this is a very handy salt storage box to have in the kitchen. The lid pivots on brass pins, which can be seen from the sides of the box. A bevel along the inner edge of the back of the box allows the lid to open passed 90 degrees so that it will stay open without the worry of snapping shut. The pivot side of the lid is also rounded to ensure free opening of the box. The inside and outside receive a generous coat of mineral oil to bring out the beauty of the wood and the outside is finished with beeswax and mineral oil paste. A tin of the beeswax paste is included with each salt box.

This hand crafted wooden salt box is made almost entirely from maple hardwood. The bottom panel is made from birch plywood. This is to allow a snug fit for the bottom panel while drastically reducing the wood movement in the panel. Bottom panels made from hardwood that are not given proper expansion space can end up splitting the box over time.

Because this is a wood product, it should not be exposed to moisture for extended periods of time. If it happens to get dirty, simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth and dry it completely. Every once in a while, reapply the beeswax paste mixture to the outside of the box. Just rub a small amount on and then buff it smooth.

Also, no two boxes will look the same. Grain pattern and tone of the hardwood will vary. I try to select attractive boards to use in all of my projects.

The approximate dimensions of the boxes are as follows:

4"L x 3"W x 2.75"H
5"L x 3"W x 2.75"H
6"L x 3.5"W x 3.5"H

These boxes will hold approximately 1.25 cups, 2 cups, and 3.25 cups of salt, respectively.

Salt not included.

This listing is made to order. It typically takes 2 days to complete a box but can take up to 4 days. Contact me with any questions you have.

I can do custom sizes and materials, just let me know what you're looking for.
