Stoppers & Mills
 
4 Attachment(s)
I have been preparing for a large 3 day art & crafts festival that starts today. I dont mind the production turning but I am sick of finishing for a while!

Here is the batch of Bottle Stoppers and Pepper Mills I completed last weekend.

Looking good!! I hope you do well at the festival.
What finishing process are you using?

I am pretty much using Doctors woodshop process and products. Wet sand with walnut oil, a couple of coats of his high build friction polish and then 3 of Pens Plus. I do now buy the Walnut oil by the gallon from somewhere else.

Really like industrial look of the pepper mills Jon. Is the mechanism a kit that is available online?

Very nice just to show as art. Well done!

Woodcraft sells the mechanism.

I buy mine at PSI although I think you can buy them elsewhere.

Jon, Nice looking pieces ! I am interested in how the finish as you described using holds up in the long term? Like does it still look good after a lot of use or does it tend to wear down quickly.
