    Here are three pepper mills I did, one using a standard stainless steel kit, the second using a crushgrind shafted kit and the third using a crushgrind shaftless kit. I'm doing a demo for our club and wanted to show these three kit options. I'd love some feedback, esp. on the forms.

    All three look great. I love the contrast on that last one.

    The second one is my favorite, followed closely by the first. The 3rd one I don't care for as much, I'm not a fan of the sharp angles. I would also like more of a contrast on that one. I really like the lines you cut into the 2nd one. Very nice work on them all, good luck with your demo! Tony

    Think #2 would be better in a darker wood species. #3 is very contemporary design. Like all of them. Chuck

    They all look great, excellent photos too. My only critique is the knob on top of the first one would look better if more rounded, IMO

    I like the second one the best for a couple of reasons. The rounded knob on top is really nice. Also, I like that the narrowest part at the top of the lower section is smaller than the widest area near the bottom.

    They're all nice. I like the little turn in at the bottom of the first mill, and I like the smooth sides without lines/beads. I also like the modern shape on the bottom mill, but the plug at the top kind of draws my eye to the top a little too much.

    That's being pretty critical... I'd be happy to have made any of them.

    Not to critical at all David, I really appreciate all your comments. Gives us all food for thought.
