This is my first Pepper Mill.

Walnut .
6 inch kit
Finished with carnuba wax.

Was an interesting turning project. Biggest problem was drilling the center hole 1 1/16 all the way through the body. Once that was done, you have to make sure your length is correct. I dipped the top of this in, because I wanted more of a top piece but couldn’t go longer on the shaft length.

First one so the design isn’t very fancy.

Please leave all comments and suggestions. Thanks for looking.

Looks great, like the shape and the wood. Blondie and I go through pepper mills here. we can never seem to find on e that works well or lasts. What inserts did you use. Well done.

I like the clean lines with the recess at the top. Nice wood.

Thanks for all the great comments everyone.

The kit was a Woodcraft brand. Since it was my first one, I just went with a standard kit. Nothing fancy,or high end. Seems to work great.

Thanks Again for all the comments.
