Very nicely done—that Wild Olive has some beautiful grain! I like your design.

Thanks for the comments. Wiser, I got the idea from Chris West’s book, Turning Salt & Pepper Shakers and Mills. I’ve used a traditional mechanism, one without a grinding tension spring. You just need to shorten the shaft.
