The wife wanted a new rolling pin to replace her old plastic one. This one is made entirely on my table saw lathe jig. It is made of maple recovered from an old table. I used titebond III water proof glue and the finish is Beeswax salad bowl finish from Leevalley http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=20087&cat=1,190,42950
I initially tried turning this on my lathe and after half an hour of gouging I decided to use my table saw lathe and 5 minutes later it was done. Another 5 minutes and I had it sanded and out of the jig. I just don’t have the patients for using a traditional lathe I guess. Anyway thanks to Izzy Swan for saving me lots of time.
