first 10" pepper mill

I turned this piece of cebil into my first 10" pepper mill. My aunt wanted a 10" pepper mill. so i had to see how hard it was before I get the wood she ordered off ebay, and risk trashing another one of her pepper mills

I too am gonna try my hand at the pepper mills.Did you see Mike Hawkins,aka Firehawk's? They are the best I've seen.He has been advising me on tooling and such.You did a very nice job on yours.Im trying to figure out what types of wood to buy and what the layout should be to get a nice finished pepper mill.

***For the record*** Ive made hundreds of guitar bodies,never put one together and cant play a note.

Great job man. That looks awesome. It almost looks like olive wood. Keep up the good work.

THANKS, i am going to turn her inlayed pepper mill tomorrow. i paid 40$ for something i am now able to make on my new rikon bandsaw. so its a better feeling if i trash it, i am now able to cut accurate veneers. Which i don't think will happen, but anyone who works with wood knows **it happens lol. I will post a pic of what she looks like when i am done turning it!!!

Nice job BD,
Nice shape and finish, looks great. I haven't turned any cebil yet, but I just bought a bunch of it from the local woodcraft store. Keep up the good work,
Mike Hawkins

Great looking pepper mill I like the shape.
I noticed you are going to cut veneers are you going to plane them on a planner as well or are you going to sand them for glue up.

NO, ONCE I GET THE MISSIG BEARING I SHOULD JUST BE ABLE TO RIP THEM ON THE SAW AND JUST GLUE THEM UP. YOU CAN DO VERY VERY THIN VENEERS ON THIS SAW. I started doing them, but moving one of the bearings into the thrust position to keep using the saw, cutting accurate veneers is hard. I will see if i can rip a few today and post them
