We have these salt and pepper mills that I made many years ago and we quit using them because every time we would set them down on the table, we’d have a mess from the particles that fell from the grinders. My wife was going to get rid of them unless I could find a way to harness the loose salt and pepper. This what I came up with last night. It is made from rosewood and the handle was turned on the center of the heartwood and sap wood.
The holes were bored with a 2 3/8” Forstner bit and with the bottoms only 1/16 thick. I had to make some little plugs for the holes out of the same wood.
It is finished with clear gloss lacquer.
