    Milling Around

    I got an order for a set of Salt and Pepper mills from someone who came to my wife’s Holiday show. We emailed back & forth and decided on 8” Ash & Walnut in a clean contemporary style. I ordered the parts and turned the bodies. I finished the Ash with a gloss water-bore polyurethane to keep it as light as possile, and the Walnut with Bush oil and a satin poly. The customer approved them via email and his future MIL picked them up yesterday.

    I like those Don, It's a nice way to tell the salt from the pepper!

    Great idea Don and I like the simple form.

    They look real nice, Don. That simple form is actually not easy to pull off. You did a good job on it.

    I agree with Vaughn. That subtle curve can be a hard thing to make. Good work Don.
