    Pepper mill

    Quite possibly one of the most difficult things I have made on the lathe.

    Iím not happy with the shape, but it ďevolvedĒ as I made it. Thankfully itís a gift for my stepson, so Iím not the one who is going to have to look at it every day!

    And the wood split, so Iíve had to fill and repair with epoxy. Luckily it split along the line of the laminations so hopefully Iíve got away with that.

    Oh and the screws that hold the baseplate on snapped. So thatís held on with superglue!

    Like I said, itís been hard work! Pepper mill

    It's looks OK mate. The one thing a really struggle with is salt and pepper grinders. They never seem to go together well and some of the cheaper kits are not that good either. I tend to keep away from them if I can.....well done, nice work.

    Cheers

    I like Tigerwood/ plywood especially when it's given shape and you have done that with this, I can't comment on the shape as I am hopeless at creating what's in my mind, I normally over turn every thing and then it's toooo late.
    Very nice job

    Nice shape and yes they do need a little care when turning and fitting for the mechanism. It pays to pre drill holes for screws. I think the blank is not doing the shape any justice as it is too fussy but that is only my personal choice

    Very nice and quirky, I'd love to have a go at salt and pepper shakers but they do look fiddly! Well done

    What a tale of woe. I'm guessing you must have made it before you got your new turning smock.

    Looks good from where I'm sitting though.
