Project Information

Here's a pepper mill that I turned at a recent class at Lee Valley that was taught by Stephen Zwerling. Stephen is a local professional turner.

The mill is about 8" tall and finished with Shellawax.

I believe what I like best about these classes is that they make you take the time to do something different. I've been wanting to do one of these for awhile. Also, in the case of the pepper grinder it was nice to be show the sequence for making one since there is a fair amount of rechucking.

Thanks for looking!

Nice job Ted. I like the swirl/barberpole effect from the wood grain.

Wow, the grain tells you that you are suppose to twist it to work. Good looking piece.

Very Nice Ted! I've been wanting to start making mills. A year or so ago I bought several hardware kits, but just haven't made them a priority yet. You did a great job on this and I agree with the others…the grain in the walnut is perfect for a peppermill.

Thanks for posting it.

Thanks for the kind comments! Although I never chose the piece of wood I too was thrilled to see the grain appear.
