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.
