The wood for this pepper mill came from a Curly Maple tree that I have been making salad bowls out of. The curl in this wood was so beautiful that I had to see what it would like in a mill. This particular tree was 42 inches in diameter and was going to be made into pallets until I rescued it to make salad bowls and mills from it.

This is an 8 Inch pepper mill made in Curly Maple with very tight curl. Curly Maple is sometimes called Tiger Stripe Maple and if the curl is tight enough (close enough together) and shows a lot of character, such as the mill pictured above, it is referred to as Fiddleback Maple.

The mill is about 2 5/8 inches in diameter at the base and tapers into 1 1/4 inch in the mid section. The mill stands 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 mechanism used is Stainless Steel and 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 lustre to the mill. So it's safe to use on your food and cleans up easily. Care instructions are included.

Although you can look at the top of the adjustment knob for an S or P to see whether it is salt or pepper I use the beads/rings near the bottom of the mill to help you tell the difference as well. 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.

You are placing an order for this mill. You will not receive this exact one. There will be subtle differences from the one pictured because they are all one of a kind mills.

This will be custom made when you order it and it will take 3 to 5 business days before it is ready to ship.
