These are 8” pepper mills from scrap maple. walnut, zebra wood, oak and cherry. I laminated into 2 3/4” x 2 3/4” x 10” blocks. The mechanisms came from Craft Supplies USA. I’m getting ready to do a show in a few weeks and wanted to add something new. I really enjoyed making these. They are sanded up to 1200 grit, then some EEE and wax. They are extremely smooth! Including the glue up I have about 3 hrs into each. After completing the first one I created a story stick to use for replication.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice looking and a good use for scrap.

EEE?
