Hand Picked 23 cm / 9 inch Spalted Ash Cottage Mill®
I'm starting to use more Ash these days, and this is a great example of some of the beautiful features that can be found in Ash. Spalting happens when a mold gets in under the bark, and changes the colour to a much lighter tone. In addition to Spalting, this piece also has a rustic void in the sapwood that reveals the heartwood.
My Cottage Mills® are made from branches that have naturally fallen, mostly due to wind storms. As they lay on the ground, sometimes for years, the weather, sunlight, and moisture work their magic. The end result is a beautiful natural looking mill.
All have an adjustable ceramic CrushGrind® mechanism, with a 25 year guarantee.
