Mills are a lot of fun to turn, and present more of a challenge than the finished item leads the owner to believe. This particular (different to the ‘normal’) method, as demonstrated by Martin Saban-Smith utilises a wide 30mm shaft (5mm wider than usual) to allow for more pepper, salt or spices to be loaded into the mill. This method also features excellent wood-grain alignment as it uses a single tenon rather than the usual three. There are also a few other design tweaks to make these mills even more sleek.

Shipping: Following a shocking customer service experience from DHL, I will now be using FedEx for the shipping of these project kits, and the costs quoted at check-out are the cost price to me. These kits are quite heavy, so shipping costs to your location may be quite high.
.pdf Worksheet Download: The pdf requires A4 or letter size paper. I recommend you print if off at ‘100%’ to ensure it is correctly to scale. You will also need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader or similar program to open the document.
