Pepper Mill turned from 3” square blank of Zebra Wood, stands 8” tall. Finished with mineral oil.

Fun little project over a few hours, two evenings. I have the next one ordered, a Salt Mill using a Maple blank, a matching set for the house.

Thanks for viewing.

Those are always popular. Heard of a guy that had a three year waiting list, for his grinders. A gift and a curse…

Looks great, nice wood…

Thanks Woodbutcher.

Thanks Jack, currently not taking orders, sorry. But once I get a supply of projects I might start going to craft shows. Supplement income down the road, maybe.

Thanks Pottz, and yes it’s ready to grind.

Thanks Peter, yes I like the way that the grain popped. It is nice to see the grains come out while turning.

Thanks Ivan, I like the natural woods to bring out the beauty.

Thanks Jim, I think it found its place on the table. And it would be me as the waiter when I cook a dance dinner at home.

Very nice. I actually prefer peppermills that have non-round tops and bottoms to grab onto, especially when cooking. Wet/damp hands, especially for us ancient ones, make round ones slippery.
