This is one of my 1st turning projects, the fist was a couple spinning tops and a hammer (sorry no pics). I made this after attending for the 1st time the Prince George Wood Turners meeting at the end of last month, . One of the guys demonstrated how to make one at the meeting, he made it look easy. This was the second attempt for me and it is by no means perfect, but definitely a good learning experience. It was made of maple and walnut scraps. I will take it with me to the next meeting to get opinions on how to improve. Any comments, criticisms welcome. Thanks, Al

We got a pepper mill kit from lee valley tools that is just the guts of the mill and directions, need to be an engineer to figure it out. How is your insides done? Nice piece too!!! Like the contrasting colors!

The internals are the lee valley kit. The demo at the meeting I went to really helped when I got to making mine. It is so much easier seeing someone make one and explain it instead of just getting drawings and directions.

Hi Alan,

Great peppermill, I love the lamination idea.

One comment, is the center of the peppermill small enough for every hands to grab it ?
