I’ve had these blanks hanging around for a while and had sold the pair of mills I made for our Exhibition so thought I’d better get my butt into gear and make some more.
The mills are 10inch kits and are about 2.5in diameter at the base.
First time I’ve managed to get a bit of decent shape.
Polished with Shellawax Glow.
Hope you like them and thanks for looking.
C & C Welcome.

Thanks Bob, Russell and Tony,
I’m really happy with who these turned out. I reckon they are the best ones I’ve made so far.

Nice, the type of wood you used goes very good with the design you chose.

That’s a nice matched set Bob. Keep these for yourself and make another set to show.

Hi Brian, Mel, Dave, Charles and Pete,
Thanks for your comments. You know Dave, I just might have to do that, and make another set.
It just happens that there is another pair of kits sitting in the box.
They say the practice make things easier, well, these were a lot easier than the other sets I’ve made. Guess I finally got the process sorted.

Bob.

Bob,. Beautiful Work… That Australian Sheoak is certainly a Lovely timber. Perhaps a little like Silky Oak in some of the flecking.

Mighty fine turning Bob. Very appealing shape. Great Project.

Regards,

Cliff.

Nice set of mills. I’m about to start turning my first set and was wondering if Walnut is a good wood to use, since it will be in contact with the salt and peeper?

Hi isu1977,
I have never used walnut so I really cannot make a proper comment.
I don’t really see why not though.
Have fun,
Bob
