The base of this pepper mill is made of monkeypod. When we think of monkeypod, we associate it with Hawaii. It is not a native specie of Hawaii. It was introduced. It is native to Mexico, Central America and northern South America. It has been introduced to the rest of South America, the Pacific Islands and Southest Asia. These trees get large. There is one in Venezuela that's protected by the government where the trunk is 9 feet in diameter. This piece came from Florida where monkeypod is grown as an ornamental. The grinding mechanism has an antique bronze finish. I create the shape but Mother Nature creates the stunning color and grain of the wood so no two pieces are alike. Turning wood on a lathe to reveal what Mother Nature has created is like opening up a surprise package because you never know what an individual piece will look like!

This pepper mill will make a very thoughtful gift or an elegant addition to your kitchenware and it is sure to be a conversation piece at your next gathering. It is hand signed.

This pepper mill measures 8" high and 2 1/2" diameter. There are no stains applied, this is the natural color of the wood. I use an oil finish and polish it to a stunning satin gloss. Visit my website at www.juergenuhrig.com to see my selection of turned bowls, vases, goblets and bird calls.
