In this evening demonstration from 24th March 2020, we looked at a turning a sycamore Pepper Mill using one of the popular CrushGrind mechanisms from Denmark. Both the video and description are direct from YouTube and unedited. Enjoy!
Mills are a lot of fun to turn, and present more of a challenge than the finished item leads the owner to believe. This particular (different to the ‘normal’) method utilises a wide 30mm shaft (5mm wider than usual) to allow for more pepper, salt or spices to be loaded into the mill.
This method also features excellent wood-grain alignment as it uses a single tenon rather than the usual three. There are also a few other design tweaks to make these mills even more sleek.
Please note that whilst I am concentrating on turning the project, I may miss questions and queries, so please hold off these until I ask for questions – that way I will be able to answer as many as possible.
