Haynes Pepper Mill | Rising Tide | Dailey Woodworking

$160.00

Looking to add some color to your table or counter? One of these 8 inch Haynes pepper mills should do it for you.

The wood starts out as 49 layers of 1/16″ Birch veneer that have been dyed and glued together. This wooden peppermill is worked completely on the 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. It is safe to use on your food and cleans up easily.

This hand turned pepper mill is 2 5/8″ in diameter at the base and tapers to 1 1/2″ just above the beads/rings and stands 8 1/2″ tall. Because this is turned by eye all measurements are approximate.

“This shape came about one winter day I was outside breaking the icicles and ice off from the eaves of my house and I realized that a droplet of water would be a great shape. So if you turn the pepper grinder upside down you will see my version of a water droplet. Complete from the moment when the droplet is about to break free and becomes very elongated (everything below the head) to the moment when the droplet has just broken free (the actual head).

I’m very particular about all of the components that go into any our products and the grinding mechanisms are no exception. One of the best is made right here in the United States.”

This item is located at the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner.

“We are a family owned and operated business located deep in the woods of Western Maine. I live on the outskirts of a little town called Carthage, there are only about 500 of us in the town.

Each piece is coming directly to you from my shop in the basement of our house. I personally created all of our designs for the items that we make. My wife does some of the prep work and a lot of the paperwork. We are the proud parents of two grown girls.

I worked for many years as an on the road salesman. My wife and I built our house and I built the cabinets and some of the furniture for our new house. I am a self-taught woodturner and I started turning in the early spring of 2000.  It all started because I wanted to make a set of bunk beds for our daughters.  I had to teach myself how to use a wood lathe in order to turn the legs and spindles for the beds.  I started turning pens and pencils for practice and I have been hooked on turning ever since.”
