SALT & PEPPER GRINDERS

Last week, I posted pictures of the stuff I did on Christmas vacation. People asked for detailed shots of the grinders. Here they are, I keep them mostly straight lines since there is so much character in the teak I use. I do 2 lines for the salt and 3 for the pepper. I cut a recess in the top that the bottom fits into.

Thanks, I did 5 salad bowls, a dozen salt boxes and 3 sets salad spoons/forks and 3 other sets of grinders. And I still have my day gig.

Those are nice. This is on my list of things to do. Nice to see the face of the craftsman too.

Nice work. That is some very pretty wood, and I like the simple shape, with the burned lines.
Where did you get the kits for the grinders from? I keep debating whether I could make one on my spring pole lathe, may try one day.
