These are wonderful Christmas gifts. Anyone would be proud to receive these. I will be honest they are too nice to actually be put to use. These should be put on a shelf or counter for display only.

Thanks for the post.

Those look pretty nice. I really like the middle one.

lew, I’m not a wood turner by any means but these really got my attention. These look pretty sharp!

Nice turnings. I like the wood contrasts. The finish looks very well done.

These are really eye-catching. I’m mytified about how something like this is made.

Those are really nice, and the matching base is a great touch. So what kind of finish would you use on something like this that would not contaminate the food?

I am just looking over your other projects after seeing your rolling pin and all of them are really well done. I like the contrasts you use, the style and ergonomics of the pieces look dead on and a few just beg to be touched. Keep up the good work!

Lew, this project has been an inspiration to make salt and pepper grinders, I do have the mechanisims but not the courage to ruin expensive wood. Perhaps I will pluck up the courage and make them one day, I like a challenge and your work is magnificent.

Thank you for posting this project, I did see you have a blog and will follow it when I am ready.
