Cypress Sinker Log Pepper Mill
- Woods Used:
- Bald Cypress
- 10″ tall, 2-5/8″ wide at base
This premium 10″ pepper mill is turned from an old growth cypress “sinker log” probably cut over 100 years ago. Bald cypress grows in wet areas throughout the Gulf Coast and Atlantic Coastal plains. You can read more about old growth cypress and how it was harvested and recovered in our January 2019 Blog article.
The mill is finished with numerous coats of gloss polyurethane finish, hand-sanded between coats to produce a mirror-like finish.
The premium-grade grinding mechanism is designed to last a lifetime but can be replaced if ever needed.
To fill the pepper mill, unscrew the top and separate the upper and lower sections. To adjust the coarseness of the grind, turn the top screw.
Use and Care Instructions: Fingerprints and smudges can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Dry with a soft towel. Do not immerse the mill in water, and please keep it away from sources of high heat.
