"I used glued up stock of different colors each a 1/2 inch stock and made several of them that way. I also used African Mahogany for the pepper and Maple for the salt foe a set of grinders. They were fairly easy to turn on a lathe,"
"My first attempt was a complete failure, but I figured it out the second time. The forstner bit is huge, so you may want to pre-drill with something else. I used a 1.5" spade and this made using the forstner much easier. I even tried to gouge out the middle a bit after using the spade, and this made the forstner cut quickly and cleanly. Make sure not to drill completely through the bottom blank (at first). Drill down the specified depth (2.25") but make sure your blank is long enough to leave 1/2" or so left over. That way you can use the live center to stabilize and part it at the appropriate depth when you are done shaping. Also, I cracked several blanks by trying to go too thin on the walls. Depends on the wood you use, of course, but I'd recommend keeping the wall thickness at least 5/16". Also, I tried to use CA for the first one, but that was a big mistake. Stick with the 2 part epoxy like the directions indicate. As for a finish, you can probably do whatever you want, but I used a water-based Woodturners Finish and I'm happy with it. Can't wait to make the next one!"
