  • Peppermills

    Been trying my hand at peppermills. Once I figure out the best process order to minimize the amount of changing drives/chucks and rechucking I think these can be cranked out fairly efficiently and when sold will produce a fairly good ROI.

    Two of these came from the famous pool table legs and worked out great. I still have a few blanks from the legs left and the rest are now cutting boards. (see other post - more boards).

    Great work Jon - nice selection and combination of woods, and I like the clean lines of the form. Whose mechanism are you using in those?

      Thanks, I much prefer these clean styles as opposed to the traditional ones with all the beads etc. It also makes them much easier to turn, sand and finish :-) I think the mechanisms are from PSI or craft supplies (probably the same anyway) they were part of that large batch of stuff that came with the Nova lathe when I bought it last year. I have 2 or 3 left of these and I also have a few of the CrushGrind mechanisms which I have not tried yet.

        Thanks for posting these, they are very nice! I too like the clean lines, That one on the right, I find that particular pattern especially attractive.

        Interesting project, and I've admired your cutting boards. Great use of those pool table legs in both cases and I love what your talents and skills have done for 're-purposed' wood.

        Thanks,

          I like them! The nice clean lines do not distract from the natural look of the wood.
