The Pepper mill is done. The Salt mill blank is turned round. Wanted to show what the material looks like before its turned with the profile.
I built a jig to hold the router on the lathe above the pepper mill to cut the 8 facets on the top. I am so glad I purchased a lathe with the indexing feature!!! This shape on the top of the mill makes it so easy to turn with your hand.
8” kits from craftsuppliesusa for the hardware. I used butcher block finish to seal the mill and I can reapply that finish anytime I chose for a fresh look.
This is a gift for my Mother-in-law. She really likes to use the mills instead of just shaking out the spices.
I am thinking of finishing the salt mill with a different amount of facets on the top what would you do? Should I make it match or make it different?
Thanks for looking and let me know how I should finish the salt mill.
