Salt Mill with a Celtic Knot

I’ve had this Salt Mill kit in my shop for about 8 years, decided that maybe I should finally try to turn a Salt Mill. I turned a piece of Walnut and put a Maple Celtic Knot in it. The finished mill is 7” tall. The only thing that I wish I had done was got the Knot more in the center of the mill, rather than near the bottom. But, it’s a learning experience and I learned.

Bill, this looks excellent. Looks like your getting these knots down. ( no pun intended) I have been reading up on these since your last few projects and may give it a try in the near future. I may be coming to you for some pointers soon.

Nice work Bill, you have been a busy man. I guess the old adage is true that “You are never too old to learn” LOL
