late last year, i came up with a wild idea of adding a coffee grinder, to go along with my salt and pepper mills. with the shop shut down for the winter, i needed to reach out to someone who could help, and that someone was jon. i picked up a bunch of ambrosia maple, for new salt and pepper mills, and 6 of the new coffee grinders. after talking it over with jon, we decided that it would be a good learning experience, for a couple of his best turning students. they did a very good job on the body, and base, and everything looks good. since it is a prototype, i had promised it to a customer from my etsy store (she bought one of my salt and pepper mill sets, and asked about coffee grinders). well, enough of that, the grinder showed up yesterday. here are the pics, in parts, together, and the family. once again, a big thanks to jon, and his students!
