Inlayed 10" pepper mill

after the disaster with the black and white ebony, my aunt saw this wood on ebay and decided she wanted this one instead, which i was happy not to have to work with B&W ebony!!!
took a little longer to do since i only had the one piece, no room for error! I have no doubt she will like it. Now due to the new bandsaw i bought, I can now create my own inlay work, which is a lot more money in the pocket!

Cool lookin' mill BD.
The laminated blanks produce some really wild looking patterns. Where did you get the blank from? You can make those easy enough yourself if you have some of the different woods lying around. Good way to use up the scraps.

That's eye candy. It would be easy to add more pepper than you realized - looking at that thing while you twist it could hypnotize you!

Very nice.

thanks gentleman i got the wood off ebay. all it was, zebra wood, cherry and maple. all three of these are easy to find and i have a ton of walnut and cherry and maple lying around, so all it is is a matter of gluing them up. I paid close to 55$ shipped and i will never pay that price again for wood i can create on the bandsaw! I don't think i will be doing that much solid pieces anymore after this turn out. I think the inlay work brings a lot more attention to them and is a better selling point
thanks again jeff

brown down, am i missing the inlay? I see different woods laminated and then turned, but is there something else I'm missing?

I've always thought layups make the most interesting pieces. So many possible variations. This is a very nice effort and I'm sure your Aunt will really like it.

Really great laminating job and I like the contrast.

I think I asked you on your previous post about ripping strips for your laminating and if you had to plane them and you said your band saw cut them so you did not need to plane them? So my next question is what type of band saw blade are you using (width, skip tooth, tpi etc.) to get a quality surface so you don't need to dress them on a planer? I know when I cut strips on my band saw I need to clean up the saw marks to get a good glue joint. One more question what woods did you use? Looks like colobolo, maple and maybe blood wood or sipo.

I've got a 14" Rikon bandsaw. I use a 4 TPI, 1/2 wide timber wolf blades. it rips the wood almost perfect! I actually bought this wood off ebay, but am now able to create my own. I cut and glued 2 different ones so far and they turned out just as nice. This one was actually CHERRY,MAPLE AND ZEBRA WOOD. the timber wolf blades are worth their weight in gold. its the way they configure the teeth, is what i think sets them apart from others. here is a picture of a few boards i resawed and a mill i laminated using that new saw and that blade!

I would like to try one. What kits are you using? Is one better than the other?

Wow, that is some really nice looking mill. I mean, I'm dumbfounded. Fantastic work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
