    Next mill

    This is some dry walnut picked up on ebay. There are some tiny worm hole that I didn't have to pay extra for . It's about 10" and has one of three coats of (this one's for you Bernie) wipe on poly...I finally broke down and bought a can . I was able to squeek my Forstner bit all the way thru from both sides but did order and extension. The groove in the top will be filled with crushed stone when it gets here. Cheers!

    Very nice clean design and execution Jim. I just stepped away from my lathe where I am trying the method I detailed here.

    Jim great looking mill. Really like the walnut. I like the wipe on poly as it is easy to apply. Looking good Jim.

    Thank's guys. The shape isn't what I was looking for but it came close. I really like the look of the wipe on poly. I'm thinking about applying it while the lathe is running; first coat was done off the lathe. The pic's don't show it, but the grain really comes out, but the down (or up) side is the sanding has to be perfect. I ordered some Arm-r-seal with my crushed stone and extension to see how it works...back to the garage for another one!!!!

    Looking good, Jim. Nice clean lines. I think the detail ring in the top will look nice when done.
