I have just finished a new batch of 4 Pepper Grinders ... or Spice Mills, if you prefer. They are quite large at around 33 cm (13 inches) tall and are minimal in design. The woods used for this batch are Satin Sycamore, Northern Silky Oak and Queensland Kauri ... all obtained from salvage sources in North Queensland, Australia.

pepper grinder - spice mill - in Northern Silky Oak from Far North Queensland, Australia

These mills use the "CrushGrind" ceramic grind mechanism made in Denmark. This is the best spice grind mechanism available. It is adjustable from very fine to coarse and is constructed entirely from non-rusting materials ... ceramic, nylon, aluminium and stainless steel (washer and retaining circlip) ... the mechanism will last for years.
