I finally got around to trying out the crushgrind mill mechanism. This will be a salt grinder and I am going with a chess theme, The Queen. It is laminated maple with a poly finish. Although I like the mechanism, they are a little more work in my opinion. I will make the King next, out of a piece of Texas ebony that I have.
Sorry about the quality of the picture. This camera just does not take good pictures unless its full sun. I really believe there is something wrong with the auto focus.
