    I mentioned these in a different post and a couple people wanted to see them. Here is a picture of my Amboyna burl peppermill with the live edge top, it's about 16" tall. The snakewood peppermill is mixed in with a few others, it's 10" tall. It does have a few cracks in it. It's hard to get it to not crack.

    I current have these forsale, they are great conversation starters at my shows. I woman really wanted the snakewood one at my last show but her husband said no because she didn't even like pepper!

    Those are awesome Derek! I'm sure you had a heck of a time with that snakewood, hope you're charging enough for it! Tony

    Very cool! Turning a big piece of snake wood like that must generate a bit of pucker. All look great. Really like the natural edge on the amboyna.
