This is our three color black top Ferris mini-grinder.
Our Ferris mini-grinders come with an adjustable ceramic grinding mechanism and can be used as either a salt mill or pepper mill. The Ferris mini-grinder stands approximately 3 1/2 inches tall to the top of the adjustment knob.
The wood starts out as layers of 1/16 inch Birch veneer that have been dyed and glued together. In the case of this mini-grinder, the layers are blue, brown and natural repeating over and over again. This mini-grinder is worked completely on the lathe. First I drill the body then I shape the body using only hand tools and turning everything by eye on my lathe. The finish on the mini-grinder is a food grade polymerized tung oil and a wax mixture which gives a nice luster to the mill. So it's safe to use on your food and it cleans up easily. Care instructions are included.
You are placing an order for this mini-grinder and will not receive this exact one. There will be subtle differences from the one pictured because they are all one of a kind mills.
From the time that you place your order, it will take approximately 3 to 5 days to make your grinder. This does not include shipping time.
