    Another peppermill

    This is from some Black cherry from eBay. I cut it in half for a box later. 6" with a cast iron mech from CS. One coat of Wipe-on-poly with 3 to go. Did this one with no jamb chucks...just my Barracuda. I finally got the curve I was looking for and Vaugh get's the "I'm the photo guy" thing for being the "photo guy". Thank you Sir! It hits' the road on Friday to an RN at work.
    Lemme know what ya think

    That's gorgeous, Jim. You nailed the curve. Glad to see the picture advice helped.
