I mentioned making a pepper mill as a special gift in this earlier thread. http://forum.canadianwoodworking.com...itle-shop-time
I used the router method discussed in that thread to construct the cross feature and here is the final result.

At 8 inches tall this is a truly international mill made with Knysna yellowwood, Australian blackwood, Rhodesian/Zimbabwe teak, Brazilian jatoba and lowly North American poplar.
Many thanks to Mike Golka for the cross feature idea and permission to use it.
As always comments and critique welcome
