Vernet, who makes great thumbtips, has done the impossible — perfected the vanishing salt shaker. Better than the 1940s model, better than the one I had 30 years ago, which broke! Here’s a salt shaker you might see on any table. Sprinkle a little salt into your hand and toss it over your shoulder for good luck. Better yet, POUR the entire shaker of SALT into your fist. Show the shaker empty. Wiggle your closed fist fingers and open them — the salt is GONE! Now for the finish: close your other hand around the empty shaker or cover it with a silk. In two seconds the shaker is FULL OF SALT again! Yes, it’s mechanical, it works great, and you can use it anywhere! I’ve already sold dozens of these at the fall workshops!
