Thread: Salt and pepper

    Salt and pepper

    Hi guys got question. a customer wants a salt and pepper grinder set made of salted maple. I thought I read somewhere that spalted wood is not suitable for any food related applications. If I seal the inside with shellac would this be okay or should I tell him he needs to chose another type of wood?
    Thanks

    The spalted wood will be fine sealed with shellac.

    I wouldn't use salted maple for the pepper grinder, though
