    And a few pepper mills

    I've discovered the little 4" crank mills from PSI... they're cute, easy to make and pretty good sellers... these are 5 that I finished this week for the holiday markets. They're all 4" tall and finished with wipe on polyurethane.

    This one is Oak Burl and probably my favorite of this batch.

    The next four are all turned from Spectraply... Birch veneers that are dyed and pressed together... the first is orange and white for the VOL fans... Hopefully now that the Vols have finally won a game or two, things will pick up and I can sell my VOL peppermills..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Those are beauties Chuck. Does that mechanism seem like it will stand up to hard cranking?

    Great looking mills Chuck. I made 8 for the craft fair and they all sold fast. I got mine from Packard and they can be used for salt or pepper.

    Very nice!
    I particularly like the Oak Burl.
    Well done.

    You need to try one out for awhile Chuck...I'd like to see how they hold up long term. The size is really cool and your blank choice is beautiful!!

    I don't use one in my house, but we do use a ceramic crush grind mill I made about 4 years ago, every day, and it's still grinding perfectly... these look pretty sturdy and feel that way.
