Touch this Pepper Grinder

2017, oak & aluminum. 

Objective: Design and produce a tool out of wood for material exploration class at OCADU. Personally, I wanted to learn how to use the wood turning lathe for the base and the metal lathe for the adjustable top. 

Development: The form was both intentional and spontaneous. Many iterations have been conceived after the fact, fulled by my desire to produce more variations in the future.

Acknowledgments: The internal hardware (the peppercorn grinding action) was supplied from Lee Valley. It gets used every day, so I would highly recommend the quality of this hardware.
