ave tried. The first one is black cherry from a lof my FIL gave me. It is still a little wet so I'm trying to get it dried in the next couple days.
Here is a pic of the first top I tried for this one. I'll let you use your imagination as to why I didn't want to use it!
And here's the second one I tried. I'm much happier with this one!
I haven't put the mechanisms in yet and still need to put a finish on them, which leads to my question. What type of finish do you guys recommend for a peppermill? I was thinking of clear Deft, but was wondering about putting BLO on first to pop the grain a little. What say ye?
