    Larry's chocolate turned into a peppermill

    Larry sent me a few pieces of that chocolate wood he's passing around.. so far I've only had a chance to finish one piece, a small 8" peppermill, crush/grind mechanism... I have a second blank roughed round, but haven't drilled it yet.... also have a great bowl blank that I'll try to get done in next week or so... this is great stuff Larry ... really appreciate your generosity.

    Also pictured are a couple of mills from spalted maple.. the wife's been after me to do smaller mills, so I did these three and took them to my craft show today at the Farmer's Market... the spalted maples sold in the first hour... the chocolate was fondled all day, but not sold yet...

    They are both about 7 or 7 1/2" each... and about 2 1/2" diameter..
    They were snatched up right away, so I guess I need to cut some more blanks from some of that "diseased" wood the lady gave me...
