Hello fellow woodworkers,

Besides my small lumber business ( check out Masave Hout on Facebook) I like to make small projects like peppergrinders. I make all of my peppergrinders with the cut-offs of my business, so very eco-friendly !! We also sell the crushgrind mechanism. Lots of people ask me how I make my grinders. There’s a lot of information to be found online but still I decided to make a little slide-show on how I make mine. This process works for me , maybe it also works for you.

Thanks for watching !!

Happy New Year!

Nice technique and how-to’s. I like the laminated wood combos. Really makes those mills pop.

The glue ups are fantastic. A cutoff has to be awfully small before I will throw it. You’ve just given me another reason to keep them.
