Here is another of my turning projects. This is just a simple salt and pepper mill. The wood is honduran mahogany and in the top it has a Turquoise “inlace” inlay. These were sanded to 1200 grit and finished with Mylands friction polish.

I really like using Inlace, it is a simple way to add just that little extra to a project.

I also like do turning with simple graceful shapes. I have two blanks of olive wood from Bethlehem that I paid a small fourtune for that I want to make into a set of salt and pepper mills. It will be a Christmas present for my wife. There are some splits in them that I am filling with powdered Jasper.

I used mechanisms from Craft Supply for both the salt and pepper mills. Here are the links:

The pepper mech looks to be a cast metal. the salt mech is plastic to avoid corrsion. I have not tried the crush grind mechanism yet but want to in the future. But they are more exxpensive.
