Lunar Mills using Stabilized Wood
These unique mills are turned from local Big Leaf Maple Burl that has been stabilized for us with colored resin. The bronze finial was first made from wood and then cast for us by Burton Foundry on Salt Spring Island B.C.
Here are some of the other mills we make....
