    Peppermill

    Here is a cherry peppermill that I turned some time ago for my own use. It is 9" high and finished with lacquer. It has one coat of shellac inside.

    I really like that shape Bernie. Is it darkening with age?

    Hi Bernie,

    Great, as usual. But how do the birdies get in? That's known as "Pepper Corn."

    Think I better go now.

    Enjoy,

    Thanks Ted. I have made several of these. This is a newer one. The one my sister has has darkened a lot since I turned it.

    Roflol Yep Jim I think I had better hit the sack to. Thanks Jim.

    That is a nice simple form Larry. I think I would like the neck just slight thicker because that is where all the torque and twist is. The spalted wood looks really nice. I would probably seal the inside with shellac with the spalt but that is just me. See where it takes me and where I end up.

    it's been a while since I did one, but all of the spalted mills I've made have flown out of my booths as soon as I put them out.... also seal the inside since the spalt is caused by a live fungus... sealing the inside also helps to kill the fungus. That's a really nice spalted pepper mill... really like the simplicity of the design.

    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.

    Thanks again. Most of my peppermills get a coat or two of shellac on the inside. Not something that needs/has to be done but I just do it.
