6 Inch Morrison Salt Mill or Pepper Mill - Red and Natural

Product Description

This is our 6 Inch Red and White (Natural) Morrison Salt or Pepper Mill.

On this handcrafted mill, the wood starts out as 49 layers of 1/16" Birch veneer that have been dyed and glued together. In the case of this mill, it is two layers of red and two layers of white (natural) repeating over and over. I then put the wood onto my lathe and drill the head and body. Once the drilling is complete I then shape the head and body using hand tools and turning everything by eye on my lathe.

The mill is approximately 2 5/8" in diameter at the base and tapers to 1 3/8" in the mid-section and stands 6 1/2" tall. The shape is modeled after a lady dancing. Starting from the head, shoulders and waist area, all the way down to the beads or rings that I've turned near the bottom to be like the folds of her dress.

Although you can look at the top of the adjustment knob for an S or P to see whether it is salt or pepper I use the beads/rings near the bottom of the mill to help you tell the difference as well. If the mill has three beads/rings it is a pepper mill and if the mill has one bead/ring it is a salt mill.

The mechanism used for the pepper mill is Stainless Steel and made here in the US. If you choose salt, the salt grinder mechanism used for the salt mill will be ceramic, also made here in the US.

The finish on the mill is a food grade polymerized tung oil and a wax mixture which gives a nice luster to the peppermill. So it's safe to use on your food and cleans up easily. Care instructions are included.

You are placing an order for this mill and will not receive this exact one. There will be subtle differences because they are all one of a kind salt and pepper mills. The listing is for one mill only.

Spice grinders like this make great wedding presents, housewarming gifts, Christmas gifts and birthday presents.

From the time that you place your order, it will take approximately 3 to 5 days to make your mill. That does not include shipping time.
