  1. Cutting Boards I FINALLY Finished, plus a new Peppermill

    I started these two boards over a year ago but didn't have or have access to a drum sander so they just sat. I finally took them to my son-in-laws dads shop and we used his. Itook the wife with me so the seed is planted to get one. I LOVE that tool. The first is a mixture of end cut...
  2. Cherry Peppermill

    First peppermill I've ever made. I think she turned out to be a beaut. Gave it to my mom who loves it! (scoring big browny points is good with the mumma) As the title indicates its made out of cherry. I used america's oldest peppermill mechanism,8". finished by sanding to 600 then 3 coats tried...
  3. Peppermill from Zebrawood

    Turned this up out of a zebrawood blank. Kit comes from Rockler but you can get grinders just about anywhere.
  4. OOPS, Win Some, Lose Some

    Had this all done except for the finishing sanding so I chucked it up and put my work support in the middle and when I finished one end I noticed that I had turned the material A LITTLE TOO THIN….....Damn, don't ya just hate it when that happens? I might be able to salvage the top for a coin...
  5. Birthday Pepper Mills

    These are two pepper mills I made for family birthdays in January. The one on the left is walnut and cherry finished with Mylands friction pollish. The one on the right is walnut and maple finished with Mahoney's Walnut Oil. I used the CrushGind mechanism for both.
  6. Figured Cottonwood Peppermill

    I don't usually work with Cottonwood but I just finished up this amazing peppermill with a piece of local Denver are figured Cottonwood. All C&C welcome. And I'm sorry I don't know why Lumberjocks keeps flipping my pics on me.
  7. Tasmanian Blackwood Pepper Mill

    Yet another wedding present pepper mill…when am I going to get around to making one of these for myself? I took the time to power-sand through ALL the grits, reversing the lathe every other time so the finish on this is great and it feels wonderful in the hand. Details Size: 2.5" dia. x 10"...
  8. First Peppermills

    Preparing for the Christmas season I decided to try turning a simple Peppermill set for my in laws. Don't really care for the final shape, was not what I set out for but I screwed up and had to modify… might keep this set and make them one that looks a little better.
  9. Stave Peppermills

    Getting ready for a Holiday Art Fair. These peppermills are Cherry and Walnut, stave construction. Each is about 8 inches tool, finished with 6 coats of wipe-on poly.
  10. FIRST PEPPER MILL

    This is my first Pepper Mill. Walnut . 6 inch kit Finished with carnuba wax. Was an interesting turning project. Biggest problem was drilling the center hole 1 1/16 all the way through the body. Once that was done, you have to make sure your length is correct. I dipped the top of this in...
  11. Segmented Peppermill

    Made this mill out of Zebra wood and Wenge, 121 pieces finished with Hut P.P.P. wax
  12. Salt Grinder

    Finally got around to making a matching Salt Grinder to compliment the pepper mill that I had made ~ 5yrs ago. I really like the design and was just waiting for the right wood (and time to make it). This is from a Red Gum Burl (from West-Penn Hardwoods) and Maple segments. Overall ~12" tall...
  13. 2011 Family Xmas Pepper Mills

    Here are six peppermills I just made for family gifts for this Xmas. I have a couple more in the shop just waiting for the grinder mechanism's to come in. They are all made from a single Claro walnut blank and have laminated stripes that are maple, bloodwood, and purpleheart. This was a really...
  14. Peppermill

    Here is a peppermill I made for my wife. (I finally made something for her instead of a present for someone else in the family.) The second picture shows one of the two blanks I got from my glue-up, and the first peppermill I turned. Thin sections of maple. walnut, jatoba, and purpleheart...
  15. Peppermills

    Here are some photos of recent Peppermills which I have completed. The first is made from a Maple Burl with segmented blood wood accent rings. I placed a thin black veneer as seperation between the woods and segments. Finished with ~ 4 coats of 100% Tung Oil. Once it dries completely, I will...
  16. Figured Cherry Peppermill

    This is the same cherry log as some of my natural edged bowls. I decided to cut a peppermill out of some of it. I have enough left for another 6" dia bowl. I posted some of the process. Karson and I have been exchanging pictures of the center support I made. It just uses roller blade wheels...
  17. First pepper mill

    My first pepper mill made of Ash with a crushgrind mechanism. Measures about a foot tall and feels good in the hand. The top is a little off square which is something I'll work on for the next one. I am almost considering using a larger forstner bit to square up the end. Thoughts? Only problem...
  18. Lathe Class : Pepermill

    Last Sunday I had the chance to take a class at my local Woodcraft store and got introduced to a new form of drug : turning. I didn't know that one could be a junky the first time but that's it I'm addicted. The instructor of the class was Charles, a wonderful guy who went above the scope of...
  19. Walnut Pepper Mill

    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...
  20. Spice Grinders

    I've been wanting to try some pepper mills. These are my first. They are using the Crush Grind Ceramic Mills. These can grind peppercorns, salt and spices. I did a few things different than the PDF. I made the base fit up into the top, instead of being flush together. To do that I drilled a...
