    I did a glue up for some pepper mills

    but nothing like Charles Hans... wow those are fabulous...

    I only used 14 boards glued up to make a block that I cut diagonally to get 4 or 5 pepper mills blanks

    And yet those turned out spectacular as well. Really nice use of the different woods.

    Nice job Chuck!

    Chuck, you're a board-gluin' mill-turnin' machine. Nice looking batch.
