Two pacific big-leaf maple french rolling pins which turned just fine. Two madrone rolling pins which were more problematic. The madrone is lovely and turns nicely, but the batch I used was a little too wormy for rolling pins- should have saved it for the little boxes. When worm tracks are found I fill them with epoxy and then turn it till smooth. This process is repeated until a) there are no more worm tracks exposed and the surface is perfectly smooth or b) I am sick and tired of repeating this process and stop where ever I am at the time. These happened to land firmly in the ‘b’ category.
