Another pepper mill

I layered this one a bit different but same shape as my first one.I guess I'll play around now with different shape.These are pretty fun to make once your done with the lay up work.

That looks great Gary. You've done a very nice job on this one as well. Keep up the great work.

Looks great Gary. I have two mill mechanisms that I have been wanting to make, but I have a long list of projects I need to get finished before next weekend. Keep up the good work. You are inspiring me to dig those out and give it a go.

great style

great job Gary -- classic style form with a dash of modern flair from the choice of woods and the way you laminated them

Yeah, and that's too bad too because we just voted to limit Canadians to 2000 posts a year. One more post and he'll be shut down until next year.

I'm just gonna talk in inches and feet, complain about the cold and even throw a couple of "ya'lls" and "Dangs" in there and y'all will never know that it's me. Dang it's cold around here. How do ya'll put up with it? Why, if we get more than 2 inches of snow 'round here, I can't even get my pick up truck past 20 mile an hour.

Hey not bad Ken. Sprinkle a "yonder", "fixin to", and a "up the road a piece" in the mix, and CIC will be knocking on your door to deport you back to Texas.

Itchy, I have been noticing your pepper mill skills and I must say that's one beautiful mill, very nice.

Jeff,

Good job Gary...now you got the real hang of it. Now your pepper mills will get more expensive as you add exotic woods, and as you keep loving that band saw. Seriously excellent job. Curious are you laminating without planning the wood first? I am finishing a total of 4 sets of S & P mills ( a total of 8 bodies) for my grown kids Christmas presents. I will need to post some pics before I send the last set in the mail.

Bob,Yes I plane each opposing laminated piece in a very frustrating and unsuccessful attempt to make both sides come out even in the pattern.I also try very hard to center it in the middle.I dont know how they do that!--Making one side the mirror image of the other.Any tips out there?Itchy/Gary

Good Job Itchy!

Very nice looking peppermill. Love the contrasting colors and design. Shall I send you my address?
You could enclose one of them guitar stands too!

Gary when I mark the center and before I put it on the lathe I use a punch to get a good dimple for my centering on the lathe. I had one out of 30 this last time that did not want to come out centered. I guess with the size of the mill it adds character to the mill. I know when I bore game calls that I laminate the drill bit will wonder and give me a reject, but on a small piece it more noticable.
By the way I just bought a new band saw "Shop Fox" 14" and I put a blade that I bought from Klingspor and it sure has a very smooth cut, it is 1/2" with 4 tpi. I was cutting red Cedar. So far I am really happy with this band saw. I am retiring my Craftsman 12" to Craigslist.
