You don't have to be crazy about lighthouses to love this mill. A simple appreciation for the beauty of wood is all you need. Certainly the design is noteworthy but it is the wood itself that is truly on display in this lighthouse pepper mill. So much so, it was the inspiration for its being.

When I saw the beautiful marbling of the Hard Maple (known as Curly Maple), the brackish browns and wavy black feathering of the Ash, I knew I had to combine the two for a stunning display of natural beauty. All this made more prominent by the stark white neutrality of the solid American Holly trim work. The brilliant flame red of the Padauk lantern is your virtual cherry-on-top. This mill will look gorgeous in almost any setting. These woods are especially robust and should provide decades if not a lifetime of use.

Structural Dimensions:
The height is almost 14.5 inches (36.8 cm).
The width is 3 inches (7.6 cm) wide at the base.

The finish is a clear, durable urethane/oil hybrid, polished to a medium gloss. Giving the natural colors of the woods the beauty and tone they deserve. The standard grinder mechanism is stainless steel with an aluminum shaft made here in the U.S.A.

Woods with these fine qualities are not rare but often difficult to find. Certain grain patterns, as you likely know, are unique, making this mill an absolute one-of-a-kind. Also, for me finding blocks of Holly large enough to make a mill like this is very difficult and quite cost prohibitive. Holly is one of the more expensive domestic hardwoods.

This mill can be fitted with a ceramic salt grinding mechanism or left with the standard stainless-steel pepper grinding mechanism. Please state your preference in the 'note to seller' box when placing your order. If no mention is made, the standard pepper mechanism will be supplied.
