Tips for grinding walnuts, pls?

I'd appreciate some advice on grinding walnuts.

As a surprise for their moving-away party, I'm about to make a friend's secret family recipe for Syrian-style baklava, I think they actually call it baklawi. [The secret was shared, as we are friends of thirty years, and our families are very close, so extended family.]

I haven't made it in years, and have had some trouble grinding nuts lately -- I have a hand grinder that chops nuts, but probably a little too coarsely for good baklava, which I've used before. The Cuisinart makes such uneven grind unless I grind very fine.

Any tips or suggestions?
