Pepper Grinder

Another vote for walnut here.
Air dried looks different than kiln dried.
I bet your wife loves it!
Nicely done

Thanks for all your inputs, it looks like most votes are for black walnut, so that's what we'll call it.  We used it the last few days and it works great, a nice addition to the kitchen, and makes for a happy wife.  As mentioned I have one more kit to make, probably send it to my sister as surprise.

What kit did you use for the grinder? I'm a relatively new turner, but I'd like to try a grinder. Yours looks great! Thanks!

Pretty much any walnut I have worked with had a very distinct odor/smell...Having grown up around a very productive walnut tree as a kid, the smell was easily recognizable...

I  used the end for the jam chuck, and a little was cut off due to checking, but here is the raw wood - maybe someone can tell what it is.  Doesn't have a lot of aroma.

Possibly Butter Nut? It is in the walnut family.
