In addition, grinders can be custom made to match the imaginative minds of clients. David Hobart,
creator and owner of the business, says his interest of the kitchen
device began when he received his grandmother’s “unique” pepper grinder
following her passing. After making his family pepper grinders for
Christmas, Hobart thought he might be onto something and carved out a
niche for himself by marketing them to the public.
With four active wood workers, Hobart is
always looking to expand. Co-op positions are open for people with wood
shop experience who think they’ve got what it takes to grind it out.
Workers would be paid upon completed work, “depending on quality,”
The grinders make for excellent birthday
or Christmas gifts and come with the “Greatwoodies Guarantee” which
promises to fix and fill your woodie if unsatisfied. The cost of the
grinders range between $80 and $400, depending on the design. Orders
should be about four weeks in advance due to the amount of time needed
to craft each grinder, which can take several hours to make.
