I made these 6” pepper mills for a lady that ordered them last summer, I just recently got to them, the knot is Yellowheart and Paduak, the rest of the wood is Maple, Walnut , and Cherry, she wanted them to match a rolling pin she got from me that had a celtic knot in it. they are finished with ca glue. I glued on a base because one of them became a little too thin while turning, and the base helped to strengthen them.

These look great!!! I would be pleased to have these in my home! The only thing is they would be on display and not get used.

I have a question on the finish please look for a PM from me.
