    Been working on a few pepper mills.

    I got a few laminated pepper mills blanks earlier this month and thought I would do a few of them... I'm talking to the mfgr about maybe being a reseller in my area... we'll see how that goes in time... Meantime, I've worked up part of the blanks... these are not finished, they have a coat of sanding sealer, but no finish yet... also have to put the guts in them after they are finished...

    They range from about 7 1/2" to 10 1/2" high.. the blanks were all 2 1/2 square which is a little smaller than I like to start, but seems to have worked okay..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Nice job, Chuck. Those are some cool-looking blanks. I really like colors in #3 and #4 in particular.
