Heres a set of S&P mills and a wine bottle stopper (The Ice Cream scoop I already posted & gave them for thanksgiving). I made these for my Parents inlaw for Christmas . The mills are 12” tall Walnut & Maple .

On the bottle stopper I like the pattern , it reminds me of a wine glass

I really like the wood combination and the design in the tops of the grinders.

A question on the mills. Can you give a little review on the grinder mechanism and how well it works. I’ve seen a couple advertised, but, no one gives you an honest review of the quality of the grinder and the grind.

Karson
Here’s some info on the ones I chose http://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/store/Projects___Pepper___Salt_Mills___Crush_Grinder_Mechanism___crush_grind?Args=
The reason I picked these is on the salt mills salt can corrode the metal parts ! These kits have ceramic grinding mechinisms ( the shaft is metal ) also you can make mills from approx 12” down to aprrox 4-5 ” by cutting the shaft .
I didn’t really like the other mills because of the knob/screw on top ,sometimes I like to put stone or burl accents on top ,I’ll be posting some of those soon! You also have to use screws to secure the parts , on this kit they snap in place , on the link I posted look at the instructions for both types of mills and you’ll see what I’m talking about ?
Now for performance: The grinding is smooth but I noticed that the consistancy of the ground material is just OK in other words when you want course you get fine, medium and course all in one but when you adjust it for medium or fine its great.

Hope this helps
Rj
