This pin is simpler to assemble that the first one because it is just 30 degree wedges that alternate in type of wood and orientation. The end ones are only 15 degrees (half a wedge as it were). In mine I used hard maple and walnut.
One thing I found was that a stack of wedges could be dry clamped pretty easily but when the glue was added (I used Titebond III as it is “waterproof”) things wanted to squirm around so you have to use some scrap pieces to prevent this.
The wedges don’t come to a point on my rolling pin. Getting perfect points ALL ALONG THE PIN would be a bit of a trick so it’s safer to have them blunted – very slight errors are almost inevitable but these are hard to see when the points are blunted.
The handles are attached in the same way as for the first pin. These ones are spalted Big Leaf Maple – I like the way they compliment the piece.
Not as nice as the first pin but easier to make . . .
