« Part 74: Chechen Bowl Part 75 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 76: Mortar & Pestle for a Witch or Wizard »

This project was mainly because I had not done a peppermill before. This was a unique style or type of peppermill I had not seen and seemed simple enough. After opening the box I discovered I did not have the appropriate technical tools to do the job properly. However, I also know there is more than one way to do a job, so I made my progress up as I went along. Also, being a guy, we don’t read instructions anyway and not having the right tools made it easier for me to discard the step by step plans.

All that being said, I knew I wanted a dark wood for the project and the only thing I could find to fit the bill was a piece of eucalyptus. The piece of dark wood I had was a little narrow and I was afraid it might not work, but I squeezed it into form.

The button part is a little sticky. I don’t know if it need oil or it’s something I did wrong. The contrast in bright metal color to the dark wood is great. Furthermore, there is some tan portions of the wood that accent it even more. I think this project turned out great, but I’m bias.

Here’s this weeks video: Peppermill
