Well you can always make the jig for small items I'm doing the same thing.  I have everything I need for pens just didn't have everything I needed for pepper mills.  what's that the 1/4 cup?  If you have a metal lathe I'm pretty sure you could get away with making one.  Unfortunately I don't have a metal lathe other wise that would have been done already.

My wife wanted one handle in curly Maple, one in Walnut (done) one bloodwood, & one Yellow hart. I got out my only small piece of curly Maple and started turning. I learned a long time ago (married 53 years) that my wife and I do NOT share the same views on colors, shapes and other things. So I only turned the piece down enough to see its true curliness. I did NOT do much turing or go too deep.  I found out that wasn't curly or decorative enough. I'll turn the other colors and by that time (covid shot done) I'll go out in the world and find some curly Maple.:cowboy:
