Reuleaux Triangle Grinder

Reuleaux Triangle Grinder

I just started woodturning about 5 months ago and learning as much as I can. I saw a youtube vid where someone made a small cylinder turned on three off-center axes. I thought was interesting, so I tried to replicate it. not only did I recreate it, I made a box out of it. Then playing with it, I thought “what if I made a pepper grinder out of this”. So I searched for others who might’ve made something similar and came up with nothing. this was my first attempt at incorporating an axial twist into a pepper grinder. While it may not be a perfect Reuleaux Triangle, it’s close enough to count. The grinder is made from a block of curly maple.
The turning is not perfect; next time, I build a curvature template so each side is the exact same.
check out the 3D rotation I made for this: http://3dbin.com/player/aenxwvyn
