Santina’s Christmas present to me this past year (2009) was a wood turning class in which I turned a peppermill. Here it is. Wood is maple and the finish is a water-based acrylic (5 coats, I think). It was fun to do though a bit of a challenge. There were only two of us in the class, so the instructor gave us a lot of help.
I have the inserts for a matching salt shaker, but I’ll need a lathe (or access to one) to make it. 🙂
