Salt Shaker and Peppermills

Salt Shakers and Pepper mills are great tabletop items. They can be used at every meal so they will certainly become household favorites.

For salt, you can make a shaker which dispenses traditional salt. Or you can made a salt grinder and use large sea salt crystals. Salt can eat traditional metals so today they are typically made from ceramic. Please don't use metal.

Pepper grinders are popular items and wonderful gifts. The hardware for these grinders is now very standard and works extremely well. They are also reasonably priced for such a wonderful final result.

In this tutorial, Fred Holder explains how to use sphere to make salt and pepper shakers. The design is very interesting as it uses an inserted cone to restrict how the salt and pepper comes out of the hole in the bottom, yes the bottom, of the shaker. This is a fun one to try.

Making a wine bottle shaped peppermillMaking a wine bottle shaped peppermill
By: Aurele Delaurier
In this project, Aurele used 3D images to show us how he inserts a contrasting piece of wood into his turning blank. This provides a "label" space on his finished turning.

Then he goes one to show how he turns the bottle shape and makes the grinder top. This is a very clever design for a pepper grinder.

As a bonus and intended to stimulate your creative thoughts, Aurele shows a goblet that he's inserted a threaded lid and converted to a salt shaker.

By: Nick Cook
In this project, Nick shows all the steps in making a pepper grinder. This is probably the most detailed and best written article that we've seen on peppermills. The drawing at the end of the project gives exact dimensions for making this style of peppermill. This allows you to duplicate the peppermill as a learning experience and then you can start making your own designs with this core knowledge.
