Just finished a batch of pepper mills (2) and salt & pepper combos (4).

Four of these are maple, one is cherry, and one is ash. All are finished with 3 coats of polyurethane and buffed.

Sorry for the fisheye effect … the tops aren’t really as big as they appear in the photos.

BEAUTIFUL! That’s some expert work my friend. They’ll look fine on anyones dining table. All set for a Thanksgiving feast. Is the pattern on each top done with a knurling tool intended for steel knobs? Quite attractive.

Very well done. Excellent finish. What did you use for the rings onthe top and bottom?

Handtooler & doubleDD—I have a Wagner Apprentice Texturing Tool from Craft Supplies … bought it with a gift certificate I won in a raffle at one of our turner’s club meetings.

I’m still learning to use it. Sam Angelo just did a video review on this tool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTkra9TG1Lg

Gerry, Thanks for the video link to Wagner turning tool for patterns. Very interesting. If, and when, I get a better lathe than my 1978 ShopSmith. that I now seldom use, I’ll definitely get one. I like the effects very much.

They’re beautiful, like the shapes and the finish. The woods have pretty grains and nice textures. Great job!
