Using various pieces of wood that was disposed of by a stair company and some from pallets I have created another load of rolling pins.
Glued up straight pieces until I got a pretty much 2 inch square blank about 16 inches long.
Then I cut them on an angle using my home made jig.
Followed by very tricky clamping routine so that the angle pieces stay where I want them. I hold one piece in the table camp and start there. Then add the glue and put pieces in place I have to add clamps on all sides to keep it from moving including a clamp on the ends to keep the pieces from drifting apart, that is the essential element.
Finished with Watco “Butcher Block Oil and Finish” which leaves a hard, glossy surface that is certified food safe.
