My pops bought this from Woodnwhimsies.com. They have kits from Pennstateind.com cheaper than pennstateind.com sells them. He wanted to turn it but with him being a newbie turner he didn’t think he could turn it to the profile he had drawn on a paper. He ended up giving it to me to turn.

It is made out of Mahogany from a church pew we got when the church was remodeling. The outside is finished with lacquer and the inside bowl to catch the coffee grounds is finished with food grade orange oil and beeswax. The wood portion of the grinder measures 4 1/2” x 5 1/2” . The whole grinder measures 10” x 5 1/2”.

It was a fun little project. I would recommend this project to any turner/coffee lover or a turner with a gift in mind for a coffee lover. Thanks for looking and any comments or constructive criticism is welcomed.

Interesting! Did you use a bandsaw to cut out the drawer in the middle section? Also, in what order did you turn the three layers? I can’t figure it out.

Yeah Ron, I cut the drawer out on the bandsaw. First off the blanks were square. After I cut the drawer, I glued the 3 sections together. After 24 hrs of letting the glue dry turned a remind on the blank then put the drawer in and put a couple screws in it to keep it from flying out. Then its just a matter of turning it to the profile you want. In all my turning whether it be a bowl or a coffee grinder, I go from the top to the bottom.

Very nice, but how do you hold this while turning the crank? Do you use your arms or legs?

Thanks Chuck.

MMH, you hold it with your hand and turn the crank. It only measures 10” x 5 1/2”. Not big at all..table top size to set by your coffee maker.

Great project, I don’t think I have seen a grinder made on the lathe. Nice
