    3rd Peppermill

    Here is the peppermill I turned for my Dad. He came to visit a couple days after Christmas, so I didn't finish it until he arrived. He enjoyed the turning process as much as the mill itself!

    The pics look like the base is small, but that is just perspective. It is actually slightly larger than the middle.

    Wow, that's really nice, Ed. Did you glue up the blank or purchase it that way? However you got it, the end result is very cool.

    Thanks Vaughn. I did the glueup. It is Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. Really came out nicely.

    Wow Ed that is beautiful. That is a definite eye catcher. Well done.

    Beautiful work Ed! Looks like two entirely different pepper mills! Always good to hear when you get family involved in turning! I am sure your Dad will love this!

    Ed,
    Nice peppermill.. really like the glue up. What did you use for a finish.. Looks soft like a satin finish and really shows off the wood.

    I really like it ED!

    My brother gave me some dry maple to make some grinders so now I have to order the kits.
