Inspired by the more modern towers made of concrete, this mill takes its cue from some of the Spanish style lighthouses of the west coast. The design is simple and robust. It will appear prominently wherever it is positioned in your home.

The body is made from solid hard Maple then given a light whitewash stain. The base is made from a solid chunk of American Cherry in a natural finish. The lantern is made from Ash and given a unique treatment to represent the light's Fresnel lens. Like a ruby red jewel atop its pedestal, the lantern housing is constructed of two separated pieces of Redheart (a wood originating from Southern Mexico to southern Brazil and Paraguay). It also is done in a natural finish. All this then is encapsulated in numerous coats of clear, water-based urethane and polished to a glassy-hard finish.

The mill stands moderately tall at 14 inches including the grind mechanism tension knob. The base measures 3 inches wide. The overall fit, finish and heft of these combined woods gives this mill a high level of quality in the hand.

This mill is fitted with a stainless steel and aluminum grind mechanism (made in U.S.A.) for use with pepper. However, it can be fitted, upon request with a polycarbonate mechanism for use with salt and other spices.

I crafted this mill through many hours over a period of a couple weeks time. I produced just this one mill (I don't run a production line). I wanted to get the design, proportions and finish exact. I had a most enjoyable time working on this mill and it is my hope that you will enjoy its simple beauty on your table for many years to come.

Thanks for dropping by.
