Salt boxes serve as a kitchen storage unit for salt, protecting it
from moisture and providing easy, one-hand access to the salt. They
were popular before glass and metal salt shakers became commonplace.
Salt boxes are largely decorative today and are often made by
craftsmen, as you must use dovetailing instead of nails. Hinges must
also be avoided, as the exposed metal will corrode because of
prolonged contact with the salt. Salt boxes can also be made from a
single piece of wood using a method known as wood
turning.Difficulty:Moderately ChallengingInstructions Things You'll

Running bamboo is an easily grown, fast-spreading grass that is often
planted as a privacy screen. This type of bamboo can pose a problem
for some homeowners. If you don't like it, it can be nearly impossible
to get rid of. Salt is an effective plant killer; be careful using it
