Here’s a coffee grinder I finished recently.
Mechanism from Rockler.
Bubinga with Paduak for the splines.
Drawer is leftover thin maple from the wood tie.
Sanded down to 600, applied 3coats of Blonde shellac, then some clear wax
1st time using miter splines
-Made this jig to do it

1st time making a kitchen appliance
It takes about 5 min to grind up enough coffee for a pot, but it’s worth it occasionally. Something about working for the coffee makes it better.
After i finished it, i used it a few times. Due to the rough nature of grinding dried/roasted beans, the drawer tended to come out. I put a magnet on the back and foam rubber feet, now the drawer doesn’t dance around anymore.
I welcome all comments, questions and criticisms.
