If you're going to make a pepper/salt mill, it would be a gross error to not make this dvd a part of your education. A first class video in all aspects. Great spindle turning advise that will greatly improve the quality of your work even if you decide not to make some mills.The design info will take your work from ho-hum to objects that force people to want them in their hands.Other turners I know simply fell in love with the dvd jacket cover photo of the maple mill, and just that picture changed their perception of design.Get it, you won't be sorry.

This DVD is incredible! Ted's mastery and passion for the art of woodturning are very evident. He doesn't just show you "how to" turn a peppermill. He guides you through the processes to make a peppermill that you and/or your customer will be very pleased with. There are so many extra features in the DVD. This is a "must own DVD" for all woodturners!
