    Peppermills

    I've screwed this up twice this morning... maybe I can get it right this time.. I've been trying to say that I don't do bowls as well as you guys, but I think I have the peppermill thing figured out pretty well. Here are a few that I have ready for an upcoming show.

    Chuck: I've not tried peppermills yet but I hope that when I do they will come out as good as yours. I hope you do well at the show

    Those are great, Chuck. I especially like the center one on the top row. I've done several pepermills in thepast but it's been a while now. Those make me want to do another one or three!

    Nice pepper mills Chuck! I can't let LOML see these until I am ready to try one or I'll never hear the end of it. What suggestions would you make for a 1st time pepper mill turner?

    Ditto here...I've got two pepper mill kits and two salt mill kits, but I haven't done anything with them yet. Any tips or tricks?

    I really enjoy making the mills. I am a big advocate of the crush/grind style of mechanism because they are more forgiving on dimension, other than that, the best suggestion I can make is have fun with them.
