This peppermill's stem is made from red elm. The head is claro walnut with polka-dots of maple. Its grinding mechanism is a high-quality ceramic grinder from CrushGrind®. The saltshaker is made from sugar maple that has a bit of spalting. I used my torch to darken its head. Both pieces were finished with non-toxic tung oil.
