Edit: This is my entry into the Yin Yang Contest. I think the dark Walnut and Sapele contrast with the Maple to further enhance the Yin Yang character of the overlapping Celtic Knot design.
You may remember that Karson and David visited me last month and gave me a couple of pieces of really special wood.
Well here is the first project. I know, I have posted some rolling pins before but this one is a reverse of the previous ones. The others were mostly light with a walnut knot.
This is the piece of Sapele. The Celtic Knot is made from Maple and Walnut. The finish is pure mineral oil.
Thanks, Karson!! BTW, I still have enough of the Sapele to make one or two wine stoppers.
Comments and critiques are always welcome!
