When I hear the words, Coffee Grinder, I think of a powered high speed cutter with a plastic case. It's our experiences that lead us to these types of conclusions. But coffee grinders were not always electric.

|Making an Antique Coffee Grinder|
By: David Reed Smith
In this article, David shows how to make those fun antique coffee grinders. Now don't think that this is just for decoration or a toy, this is a real working coffee grinder.
David goes through all the steps in this photo tutorial to build this project. This includes the coffee drawer which is a challenging concept made easy with David's explanation. David also provides all the information needed to make this project including; where to get the grinder, what size woods you need and even a line drawing of the major dimensions. This is one of the most complete projects we've seen!
