I so needed a project for the women in my family for Christmas. Lew’s blog on making this rolling pin fit the bill perfectly. It was interesting making the jigs (not as over engineered as Lew’s) and cutting the blank without really knowing the result. Through all the steps carefully laid out by Lew on this site I kept wondering if I was doing it all correctly. When I finally got the blank on the lathe and started to reveal one end of the knot I knew my wife’s present could not wait. I had her come to the shop and watch me finish it out on the lathe to see the Celtic knot come to life. Very cool. I made her promise to use the rolling pin not just set it aside as a keep sake. Well worth the effort.
It would not have been possible without the care and attention Lew gave to his tutorial.
