This is a lighthouse pepper mill I made out of birch. I used the ceramic shaftless mechanism, that Rockler and Woodcraft sell. My lathe does not do boring ( it’s a 23 year old vintage of the $99 one at Harbor Freight.. POS). So what I did was drill out a 1 1/2” counter-bore and made a sleeve and put 3 notches in it to catch the tangs of the mechanism. It works real well and smooth.
