Turning Salt & Pepper Shakers and Mills: 30 Projects for Turners of All Levels

Turning Salt & Pepper Shakers and Mills: 30 Projects for Turners of All Levels Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Please pass the salt! And pepper! This first ever book dedicated to turning salt and pepper shakers and mills will guide turners in creating small projects that are practical and beautiful, perfect for yourself or to give as a handmade gift. The 30 step-by-step projects, rated by level of difficulty, are fairly easy to finish and use only small amounts of expensive materials. While turning wood is the focus, author Chris West also shows how the same design can be reconceived using different accessories—like glass, metals, or ceramics—and assembly methods. The designs include both traditional and CrushGrind mechanisms, which allow for more flexibility and grinding options (for coarse or fine grit). A gallery of work from internationally recognized turners rounds out this craft-pleasing book filled with beautiful pieces.

CHRIS WEST has been turning wood for more than 30 years, specializing in turning salt and pepper mills and shakers for the last 12. He’s written extensively for Woodturning magazine and gives talks about his experience throughout the U.K., where he lives.
