The mill features the wood’s sublimely smooth texture, juxtaposed against the patina of extreme ageing and submersion. Growth rings, too many to count, show a wonderful array of grain patterns.

This wood was reclaimed for us from wood that had been submerged and reclaimed from the Franklin River in Tasmania. Estimated to be in excess of 2000 years old, (some stands of Huon Pine have been dated at 14,000 years old) this extremely rare and highly sought-after wood is prized by wood crafters.

Details

This wood was reclaimed by us at Franklin River, TAS and then turned by hand from a single piece of wood on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

Danishdesigned CrushGrind® ceramic mechanism, guaranteed for 25 years.

Suitable for use with peppercorns, rock-salt and hard spices.

Care Instructions

Almost without exception, all of our products have been made from reclaimed or recycled timber such as old posts and cattle rails. These have stood the test of time, but still don’t cope well with exposure to extremes of sudden temperature or humidity changes.

They have been finished in a blend of natural oils and waxes and should require only very minimal ongoing maintenance – at most, a yearly wipe over with food-safe neutral oil such as grapeseed or ricebran. At the same time, perhaps a very light smear on the top of the pentagonal aluminium shaft to allow the top to continue to slide on easily.

The ceramic grinding mechanism loves to crush good quality rock salt and whole peppercorns. Either white or pink Himalayan rock salt will work well but white has less moisture content so it works best.  We strongly recommend Saxa brand rock salt which is specifically labelled “suitable for refillable grinders”.

Properly seasoned wood is stable but might change superficially.
