    And a little pepper mill

    I also knocked this out last night... it's a glue up of a couple of corner wedges from a block I worked early this or last year... I put the wedges together to form a square, and put a strip of red veneer between them to make sure I had a good glue line... the woods are south American woods, Pau Santos, Brazilian Ebony, Bloodwood, Lourdes Canales and a little bit of Caribbean Rosewood that showed up on the top end...

    I still have to do a finish and put the insides in the mill... it'll be ready for the market in 2 weeks.

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

    Hey Jim, The mill is 5 1/2" tall and not finished yet, but I'll probably use a wipe on poly for a finish...
