The Find: a salt and pepper set with an axe to grind
Doctors recommend sodium-free diets, but these Hatchet S and P shakers we found at Made warrant a second opinion. There is no veneer here, just good Canadian maple and some smart eco-design. The creation process is simple: Sheridan Furniture Studio students Tomas Rojcik, Mark Finnigan and Joseph Bauman throw hatchets (see what they did there?) into wood to create a split, and voila. The trio wanted to create modern objects that produced limited material and energy waste. We’re not sure the novel table toppers will de-thrown our mother’s silver, but for day-to-day use, the Hatchets will do more than slap chop the competition. $45.
