Looking for a beautiful pepper grinder that lasts? Here is your answer to all of those mills that you've bought that just don't hold up over time. You know the ones that I'm talking about. It looked good on the shelf but the peppermill or saltmill stopped working a couple months after you got it. Maybe it lasted a whole year but then one day you couldn't even turn the top to get it to grind.
Rising Tide laminated wood starts out as 49 layers of Birch veneer that has been dyed and glued together. Rising Tide is made up of blue, brown and natural layers that repeat over and over.
This set of mills consists of a 10 inch pepper mill and an 8 inch salt mill.
The mechanisms used in this Rising Tide set of salt and pepper grinders are made here in the USA. The pepper grinding mechanism used is Stainless Steel and and the salt grinding mechanism used is Ceramic and both are designed to give your mill a longer life.
This wooden grinder is worked completely on the lathe. I drill the head and body first. Once the drilling is complete I then shape the head and body using hand tools and turning everything by eye on my lathe.
The finish on the mill 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 cleans up easily. Care instructions are included. This will be a real conversation starter.
The Morrison mills are approximately 2 5/8 inches in diameter at the base and tapers to about 1 1/2 inches in the midsection and stand 10 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 beads/rings even have a purpose, I use the beads/rings near the bottom of the mill to help you tell the difference between pepper and salt. 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.
Spice grinders like these make great wedding presents, housewarming gifts, Christmas gifts and birthday presents.
Care instructions are included with all of our mills.
