    The new little mini pepper mill kits from PSI

    I actually bought my kits from Packardwoods, but same kit...
    I bought a bunch and tried them out this past week... they turned out pretty well, but as someone posted on another forum, you do have to watch your measurements... I was 1/8 or so off in two of my blanks... one was too short... could fix that with a little work on the grinder to shorten the stem, the other was too long and it's a toss... I'll remake it and get the dims right. The others all turned out well.

    These two are from some scrap plywood I had left over after fixing the wife's dinning room chairs... glued up to create the blanks.

    Chuck those are beauties. Thanks for the insight on the measurements. I have been thinking of doing a few of those.

    Wow! Nice work. I'll have to try something daring on my lathe soon. While I'm young. I like the idea of turning plywood.
    Cheers,

    I can't answer just yet... I've turned them, but not used one yet... but in putting them together and turning them a few times to make sure they turn, it seems to be pretty stable... part of the cap is recessed into the wood, so it doesn't moved side to side any...
