Did these for Christmas gifts. Box Elder, Ambrosia, Holly, Lum, that came from a lumberyard here in Bagdad, KY., and Pine (Pine was from an 1800 barn somewhere in Ohio). Grinder kits came from PennSt. Finished with 5 coats of gloss Minwax water based poly. Thnx for all the looks, and good/bad/ugly comments. The 5th picture is just a little jig to cut the edges off each blank before mouting them on the lathe. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas 2016.

People will be very happy receiving them… for sure!

Are they combo units with Both Salt & Pepper… or just One at a time?

Very COOL!!

Great work!
