I was asked how I made salt, pepper mills that looked like it was spiraled.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I glued up some pieces of wood that are cut diagonally. You can only glue a few at time,

because being on an angle they tend to slip.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The finished product.

Makes for interesting shakers. Excellent turning, I might add.

Beautiful Dick, pretty ingenious idea. You should have patented the rights. mike

Nice, I would have enjoyed looking at the glue up and clamping you did. What brand grinder did you use? I have not been happy with the grinders I have seen in the past.

Snowdog!
Peugot is the name of the pepper mill. They call it the Rolls Royce of mills.

Ours has worked real good for many years. It does a nice fine grind.

I’m not sure were I bought it. Maybe Cherry tree toys.
