A. Making a Peppermill – DVD
Professional turner Ted Soklowski guides you through the complete process of making a pepper mill and matching salt shaker. He demonstrates how to combine design concepts, such as visual weight and fair curves, with the grain pattern of the material, and shows how to minimize bit wandering when boring the blank, make a jam chuck, and re-center accurately. Extras include a scale drawing of a pepper mill mechanism, and a Microsoft Excel® template that calculates precise drilling depths.
Length: 110 minutes.
