Pepper grinder made from Monkey Pod wood.

Made this for my wife for Mother's Day to replace a pepper grinder I made for her a few years ago. That first grinder I made with a poor quality mechanism like this one:

That one never worked right. I made this new one with the CrushGrind mechanism like this one:
It is DEFINITELY worth the few extra dollars.

Finished with General Finishes Bowl Finish:

Nice clean lines, looks very nice.

How was the wood to work with? I have seen that Cook Woods had been running a sale on the Monkey Pod. As for grinders have you ever used anything from Penn State Ind? That is where I pick up supplies.

I enjoyed working with the money pod. It has fairly large pores so needed a few extra coats of finish to make sure they were sealed up. Never heard of Penn State Ind - I'll take a look.
