salt mills made from maple (maybe....)

So I made a few more mills this last weekend. I had some blocks of walnut and what I though was maple. I turned the 6" mill and applied the finish, then I turned the 3.5" little guy that has a little bit of curly figure to it and after applying the finish did a double take because I don't think the first one was maple after all.

So let me know, what woods do we have here? Maple and...maple?

Could the big one be cherry?

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

some kind of ash, perhaps? check out Paul Hinds site, down the bottom of his WHITE ASH PAGE there are some pix of turned bowls

to me the ash on looks like it has a more distinct grain pattern then the mill. Although maybe a different finish would make it look different.

There is a pic of the other side and the top:

Pretty sure not ash...

Probably maple, my guess...

There are just so many different types...
Even that ugly red stuff that TT cuts, is maple...

We'll get Mr. Hinds on board soon...

p

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

DV,
I'm going with the maple and maple too. Probably no other wood had so many different looks to it. Nice job.

I meant the other one (rounded top, paler) might be ash ... but popular vote says it isn't
