Alternate to coffee grounds

Bill Hale
>It seems that most think coffee grounds is the best filler, but.
Whenever I am turning wood of any special color eg. ironwood or purple heart I clean the floor prior to the turning and then save the chips. Put the chips in a coffee grinder and make a colored filler. You can grind course to very fine. I save in Kerr canning jars for future use. I also grind my rock fill the same way.

Good turning and be safe
