Mike, great work as always! I showed your pictures to my wife and she loved them. I think I'm gonna have to make a few myself. Do any of the woods you mentioned bleed over at all into the lighter colored woods next to them when you are finishing them? I ask because I bought a piece of Padauk to make some pen blanks out of this weekend and asked the guy at the store how it turned and he said very good but you can get bleed over into something like maple if you are using a friction polish. Just made me wonder if woods such as bloodwood does the same thing? I may take you up on your offer to Eugene re:your techniques for peppermills if you don't mind, too.
