This dvd gave me a good preview of many of the proceedures needed to start making peppermills. The use of an old freezer to make a drying kiln proved an incentive to make one for myself from an unused freezer. I have also made the Vblock to cut round objects on my bandsaw. So, overall I'd have to give this dvd 2 thumbs up.

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.

Outstanding video! The video is detailed and has EASY to understand instruction. It covers design, turning technique, needed tools, and finishing. I have many many wood working videos and this one is thee best by far. Looking forward to his next.

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!

I wish all instructional videos were this well developed and presented. Ted's explanation of his design, planning and turning is second to none. This is the first video I have viewed that did not leave me with unanswered questions on the concept or completion of a project. A must have video even if you do not do turning just for his insite into design and planing.

This is the most complete DVD I have seen. The design work is oustanding and the clarity of the actual turning is great.
I highly recommend this.

This DVD is well worth the price. Technically, the quality is excellent, sound being clear and audio portions nicely coordinated with video instruction. I've watch it several times, portions more than that.
I look forward to Tom's next offerings.
