    A Couple Of Pepper Mills

    Here are a couple of mills that I just completed. One on the left is walnut, jatoba and birch and the other one is cherry,jatoba and birch. A fun but a little time consuming project for my daughters

    Wow! Those are some pretty pepper mills. I can imagine the glue ups were a bit time consuming!

    I'd probably go blind cutting, matching and gluing those. They sure are nice
