Day 132: I'm thinking of taking up smoking
I finished turning the olive peppermill tonight. I'm going to hold off on final assembly until I finish the burning I'm planning to do.
I did take the time tonight to burn all of the cracks. Once the smoke cleared I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The other option was to fill the cracks with coffee grounds and epoxy, I think I prefer this option and will consider it on projects. I'm still planning to do more burning on this piece, I'm playing around with several possible designs and placements.
