Another set of grinders. These are a little shorter than my normal size. More suited for the Dining Table. The camera distorted the look a little

I like the ‘suggested ’ Spiral of your inlay work . We just assume the outer part of the spiral

continues around and around ,and it is just ‘hidden’ behind the ‘foreground’ Where the inlay stops on both

sides . ..............Nice job on these . I would love to have a Timba drum that looked just

like this . But,hey,...i like to cook too,.........

Thanks, They are about 7” tall. The grinding mechanism is in the top, The pepper and salt is in the bottom. The good thing is that they don’t leave the mess on the table. The bad thing is that it iakes a lot of work to fit the mechanism in.
