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.

This would look great on anyone’s table. Thanks for showing us this woodwork. I have not seen the Black Palm inlays before…Nice touch!

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!)
