This was a commissioned piece I did for a customer. This is just over 14 inches tall is is the largest grinder that I have done to date. In fact I didn’t even know if I could even pull this one off. I used a Shaft-less crush grinder for the mechanism. There are a couple of things that I really like about this mechanism. First is because there is no shaft you can make has tall or as short as desired. Second is that you can use it to grind salt, pepper, or any spice. Was simple to make and would recommend it to everyone!! Thanks for taking the time to look. Comments are welcomed!!

That’s really nice. What kind of finish did you use?

Neat. I did not know there was such a mechanism.
Your design is cool.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I like the design too. Not identical at the top and bottom, but balanced nonetheless. I like that you kept the sheen of the poly pretty muted.
