Thread: First Peppermill

  1. #1

    First Peppermill

    My first try at a peppermill. Turned out alright but I think it's a little to busy. Just the same wife likes it so it's not all bad. Hackberry and 10 inchs tall with Antique Oil and Renn buff.

    I agree with Bob on both counts. Especially for a first.

    Never tried one of these but if I do I hope it looks as good as this one. Great the way you have kept the grain all in line throughout.

    busy? That piece will look great on any table and the fact you made it will make it a converstation piece for another 100 years. Looks great to me. Wish I had some skills to bang out a piece that nice.
