With a vacation approaching we are road tripping to see my brother and sister-in-law in Atlanta so I made her a peppermill as a gift. She is a great cook and should be able to put it right into service.

11inchs tall x 2.5 wide. Laminated cherry and walnut shop made blank. Finished outside on the lathe. I also used my nova DVR lathe tail stock to do a the boring. I have done it on the drill press in the past but will not do that again now that I have my nova.

Please let me know what ya think

Nicely done! I have made many of these both for sale, and for gifts. People really love em.
Try a Celtic cross; on stock this big its easy.

Keep turning!

Looks nice, since I’ve been turning for a month or so every time i see something like this that I haven’t tried yet, makes me want to buy a kit and give it a shot.

Thanks for the comments.

MoreWoodPlease I really like your pepper mills also. I have always wanted to try a Celtic cross do know of any blogs on the process online? Also I am wanting to make a couple of pen blanks with interlocking wedding rings which I think would be a similar process when cutting the blank to add the extra pieces of wood for the interlocking rings.

Have your say...
