This is a matched set of salt and pepper grinders made out of highly figured Colorado Cottonwood. You won't be able to take your eyes off them, and you definitely will want to keep them on your counter or table for everyone to see! What a gift these would make, but you know you really want them for yourself.
I have shaped the grinders with (what I call) a more traditional salt or pepper mill shape, so that it looks like there is a separate top and bottom. Don't be fooled, the grinders are one piece of wood.
The grinders are 6" tall, and fit in your hand nicely. A few turns of the handle will deliver freshly ground pepper or salt from a light dusting to coarse grind. The size of grind is easily adjusted by turning the knob on top of the mill.
The pictures show the grinders from all 4 sides. Both grinders feature a high quality ceramic grinding mechanism, which should give years of trouble free use.
To refill the mills, simply unscrew the knob on top and remove the crank handle. Fill with peppercorns or salt crystals, reinstall the crank handle and knob, and adjust the grind size.
All items are handmade by me using urban (city) Colorado wood.
