Where are you getting the salt mills?...I use the ceramic grinders from Ideal Denmark and they say can be used as either salt or pepper.

Good looking turnings... Ambrosia Maple is always a great seller.

Ambrosia Maple is soft maple with a cream colored background which is host to a variety of greyish-blue to brown streaks that are caused by an infestation of the ambrosia beetle. The beetle burrows into the tree and leaves a fungus in it’s path, which is what creates the discoloration in the wood and create a very unique pattern in each board. In most or all of the streaks there are tiny holes from where the beetle burrowed into the wood. yup, there is a bit of spalting too.
