Pepper Mill and Salt Shaker Set - Ambrosia Maple

This Pepper Mill or Grinder and matching Salt Shaker are made from ambrosia maple. It was made as a demonstration at the Ogden Farmers Market on September 5, 2009, and didn't sell at the market, so it's available to my web customers. I can also take custom orders for the same price, using the same wood but shaped differently if you like.

Ambrosia maple is one of my favorite woods to work with. It's regular maple, left moist and warm and exposed to the elements after the tree dies, so that the ambrosia beetle can attack the tree. The beetle bores into the tree, bringing ambrosia fungus spores with it. The fungus attacks and stains the tree and then the beetle can eat the fungus as it reporduces. The net result: Beautifully figured wood.

The pepper grinder is made from premium pepper mill parts with a lifetime guarantee. The set is 6" tall. Price: $100.00
