Well, if it wasn’t for my friends here at LumberJocks, I would still be making firewood in the shop.
Thanks to all who offered suggestions, web links and encouragement. With your help, I found the information needed to improve the rolling pin, posted earlier.
Here is the original attempt. Notice the ellipses do not all match.
After reading your suggestions and trying again, this is what the new one looks like (still on the lathe)-
Everything lines up!! Even the construction and glue up was easier when using the tips from the pen turners site. I am going to take the original one, to a chef friend, and ask him to test it to be sure the dimensions are correct before finishing this version- just in case I need to redesign the shape.
Again, Thanks everyone for your help! Couldn’t have done it without you. I’ll post this one when it’s completed.
