First Pepper mill

My first Pepper mill didnt come out too bad.I gotta be a little more careful on centering it on the lathe tho for the pattern of wood comes out more even.Thanks for the tutorial Firehawk.Itchy

That's beautiful itch the grain worked out awesome did you plan on that or did it just work out that way. I know it's hard to visualize that before you turn it really a nice eye catcher

very cool, Gary ... yeah centering is always an issue on segmented turnings. I find it VERY hard to get it exactly right.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Mostly guess work LOL.I have to pay more attention to the little details next time.Like centering and putting a mike on the laminates to make sure they are all the same thickness.Plus the square stock in the middle should be the same thickness when I lay up this type.Thanks for the encouragement ,Itchy

Great work Gary. You should be proud of this one. You've done a fantastic job. I also used Mike tutorial and it is top notch.
Once again, great job my friend.

I was beginning to think you had forgotten about the lathe. Nice work. As far as centering the piece, experience is the best teacher, that's how I learn most of the time.

The pattern doesnt run tru exactly.If it dont sell its my sister in laws.The mechanisms must be in hi demand cause they are a little hard to get unless you want to pay dearly.Craft supplies USA sells the cheapest and they will be on B.O.About $30 for two incl. shipping.
