my future pepper mills

Here is some of the new stock that I have coming pretty soon to make some pepper mills.

The largest is 5x5x37, so that will be made into more then 1 :)

After my recent acquisition of FBE pen blanks, this will round out the collection nicely

I just need to make sure I dry them right!

I didn't mill them, I'm making a trade for them on the WoodBarter.com website. Sounds like he has a good amount of FBE available

I believe I have done business with the guy you got that stuff from...

Rumor has it that he's a good source of box elder wood.

p

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Nice stuff DV,
definitely make sure you give it time to dry. I have one of those right now sitting in a a paper bag after I turned it into a cylinder with a tenon. I could tell it was still damp. So far, so good. I checked it the other day and it hasn't cracked.

Mike,

So you turn it round with a tenon and let it dry in a bag? Do you drill it out too? How long have you been letting it dry?

DV,
I usually don't rough turn peppermill blanks. This one surprised me, I thought it was dry. It was heavily waxed all the way around to start with. I don't think I would drill it ahead of time. If it warps, you'd have an oval shaped hole. I left the ends waxed and put it in a paper bag, so far, so good. I had already put the tenon on, so I left it that way. I wouldn't bother putting one on if I were doing another blank like that. I start them out between centers, so I would wait till I chucked it back up after it dried, true it up, then cut the tenon and drill it.
