Finished these up today... been working on them for about a month.. intermittently.... haven't been really all that ambitious in the shop lately.

Glue ups of various woods, Nicaraguan Rosewood, Spalted beech, Yellow wood, Bloodwood, Spectraply Winewood, Spectraply Coffee, Bocote and probably a couple I've forgotten.... Range from 9 1/2" to 10 1/2" tall.

Those are really nice. What mechanism do you use?
I use the Crush grind mechanism from Ideal....

Hope to see you this Saturday at the market, Chuck.
I'll be there if my truck is back running... it's got a couple of bad cylinders that causes it to cut out and shutter every time I go up a hill...
It's in the shop tomorrow... have already missed 2 markets so far.

Looks great! Love the segmenting. Never thought of mixing spectraply with normal woods. Looks good.

Wish I could take credit for the idea, but saw another artist that used the spectraply mixed with other woods... copied his idea.
I buy the pepper mill blanks, 3x3x12 inch , slice them into different sizes, usually 1x3x12 and incorporate into my glue ups... you could buy the panels and not have to slice up a mill blank.
