Project Information

Christmas 2006. Everyone of my poor relatives got stuck with Right Side Up Pepper and Salt mills - based on J.R. Beall's design. These feature the cool CrushGrind ceramic mills (you guessed it - www.crushgrind.com).

This pair have black palm inlay around the shaker heads. Both the walnut and maple are tiger striped. I really go for the fiqured woods.

This set is finished with Minwax wipe-on Poly. I generally have eschewed Polyurethane as being too plasticky, but this stuff shoud hold up to sticky dining room handling.

Karson, the Lady-Wife had a stash of my work on her computer (could tell more about our mixed marriage she's PC, I'm Mac but that is another post for elsewhere). She has a better photographic technique, so I switched out photos this afternoon.

Nothing like having your wife help bring out a little chatoyance, (chattoyence, shatt… a little shimmeryness!)
