This course has been specifically developed to enable the complete novice to turn a unique spice mill (using a crushmill mechanism) with a little help from myself. For example, the pepper mills below were created in one day.
Steps for the day:
- Introduction to machinary and health & Safety
- Select wood and design shape
- Rough out shape
- Drilling body
- Shape turning
- Polishing and assembly
This process is achievable within the day for most people, and I’ll provide help if needed.
