Turned this up out of a zebrawood blank. Kit comes from Rockler but you can get grinders just about anywhere.

Nice looking grinder Ben, can you make one where the ground pepper comes out the top?

I might try that John if i could find a kit. Do you know who makes a kit for that?

Great job on this Ben. Really like the zebrawood. I made one out of marblewood and I can’t get over the similar grain pattern with the zebrawood.

Bambi – here are a few

Most of these kits are going to require certian size fostner bits and possibly an extension. And a chuck for the tailstock.

The kit i used requires a 1-1/16 for the main bore, which is hard to come by, but you can do it with a 1 inch. Then pare out a 1/4 wide slot for the retainer bracket in the bore.

Good luck! Love to see it when you make one.

Great work Ben, You need a Salt grinder to go along with it!

Hey Ben, I’ve never made a grinder but I looked it up at Lee Valley and they have that type. Like they say in the info the top discharge keeps your table cloth clean. I just might pick up the kit and give it a try.
