Recently I was able to purchase some absolutely stunning Maple Burl to make into mills.
The figure in this wood is beautiful and because it's Maple Burl the grain will be going in all directions and there may be areas of bark (bark inclusions), maybe a few cracks but none of this will take away from the working grinder. All of the figuring just adds more to your one of a kind mill.
The Morrison mills are approximately 2 5/8 inches in diameter at the base and taper to 1 1/2 inches in the midsection and stand 8 1/2 inches 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.
The pepper mechanism used is stainless steel and made here in the US. The salt mechanism is ceramic and 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 mill. It's safe to use on your food and cleans up easily. Care instructions are included.
You are placing an order for the mill or mill set and will not receive these exact ones. There will be subtle differences because they are all one of a kind mills.
Spice grinders like this make great wedding presents, housewarming gifts, Christmas gifts and birthday presents.
