This mill has a ceramic crusher and stands with its head up instead of down like most pepper mills, with a partial cover over the top. The pieces are all glued with Titebond #3 waterproof glue. This peice has a food-safe oil finish.

When you turn the grinding mechanism the purpleheart wood stripes will line up at 0 and 180 degrees

Mary : Good design. Nice attention to detail.
nick : Looks a little top heavy from the photo. Nice choice of materials.
