A 10” mill in walnut, with holly strips inlaid in the blank before turning. How’d I do?

I think it is awesome! Especially for a first effort, Barb! Really nice choice of wood and pretty sleek design too. I think it is a winner! :)

Nice. I like it.
I always wanted to try one of these.

The holly looks just the right size and shape to me.

It’s elegant and beautiful!! The stripes really add an extra dimension to it.

So now you need one with ebony stripes to use for pepper and convert this one to salt.

Thanks Pete. It does feel good in the hand. And I think I’ll make Two new ones inlaid with colored woods for salt/pepper, not quite so tall. I have other works to complete first, but this is high on my list now!

Thanks for sharing.
