About this wood: Arbutus Menziesii, commonly known as Madrone or simply Arbutus is a hardwood native to Pacific coastal regions of Canada and the United States. It is a cherished and easily-identified tree in its native range, known for its distinctive peeling red bark and erratic twisting branches. Timber from this tree is rarely produced as it is notoriously difficult to properly cut and dry but when done right it yields truly exceptional wood. Arbutus is hard and finely-grained with an array of colours ranging from reddish tones to streaks of blue. One of our all-time favourite woods!
Please note that every pepper mill will be unique due to natural variation in each piece of wood.
