No reason my son who provided the wood shouldn’t benefit from the bounty as well,. . . so this is what he ends up with. Hopefully he finds this to be an equitable trade! This set, instead of making a seperate salt shaker, I incorporated the salt shaker into the top section of the grinder. The center stripe is maple with the outers being black walnut. Finish is again CA glue buffed w/0000 steel wool. It’s about tiime to make something different now.

The wood used (other than stripes) is all “Utah Juniper” (Juniperus osteosperma ). Though called Utah Juniper, is found predominantly in the southwestern US. It is similar to the Western Juniper, but is noticeably smaller in stature. This log came from an unussually red/purple colored tree. My son who cut the wood said that all of the trees in the area he cut this batch of firewood from had this coloration. All of the wood in this set and the one posted prior came from the same log.

I’ve seen a lot of pepper grinders and it takes something really special to catch my attention. This does it. This is creative and very impressive. Thanks for sharing.
