A simple segmented project
#7
  
This set of salt and pepper mills was a really easy but useful project. Each grinder requires less than half a board foot of wood. Every segment is the same size so making the sticks and segments from leftovers is an efficient process. The grinder kits are only $15 a pair so the whole project is pretty inexpensive.

I have about 9 hours in the whole project, mostly because I did it as segments.

The woods were ash and walnut, finished in spar varnish because I wanted something that would withstand a lot of handling.

We do segmented turning, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

Very nice and the contrast in woods is great. I like the ash one since the grain really pops.

They look wonderful and the Ash rings make it look kind of like quilted maple.  Right now I can not afford the parts for the grinder.  In the future tho.

Thanks buddy

Great project. That ash really looks good. Might have to find some.
