    That's sweet, Sweet. I like it. Where is the driver located? At the top in the shadow, or down by the flare? ........... Jerry (in Tucson)

    This is a shaft driven Crush Grind. The driver is in the finial. I did semi-hollow the base/body combination with a 2 1/2 x 3 " cylinder. This will allow a large volume for peppercorns.

    I like it! I've always wanted to do a mill with a large, hollow body because I hate filling them. Inspirational!

    @DKMD , in my case it was fairly easy. Since the base and body were from different turnings, I could just bore a 2 1/2 cylinder in the center of each. For single piece it will be a bit more challenging. Especially, if you want to include a gradient to feed the grinder from the reservoir.

    Really nice! Food for thought too. Hollowing out is a great idea.

    Mills can be hollowed as much as you dare, as long as the mechanism fits in the top & bottom. I hollow out shorter mills as much as I can to hold more salt or pepper.
