Scraps of maple and orange agape (mahogany family) and a good bit of glue came together for this pepper grinder. I prefer to use the ceramic grinding mechanisms as they allow a clean look with all of the mechanicals hidden from view. No plan on the shape before turning but it seems to look a bit like a chess piece now that it’s done – a rather tall chess piece at 14-inches!

It must have a real “grind” to make that beautiful pepper grinder!
“Turned” out very nicely.
Enough punishment.
