I always want to give credit where it is due, so I have to say thank you to Lew for his great blog on how to make these rolling pins.

The rolling pin in the first two pictures is made of jatoba with the knot being made of walnut and maple.

The last two pictures the rolling pin is maple with the knot being maple and look degoose, its purpleheart. Kent wanted bubinga, but I told him it was not a jig.

Love the Celtic knot in your rollin pins ! I like the 3 layer laminates to make the knots!! I was wondering how that would look . Glad you gave me a visual before I do mine.

Great Job!!

beautiful.
another one of my “I want” but not a “I’m going to make”—too hard for me to do.

Bravo.

Thank you all for your comments.
MsDebbieP: the hardest part is building the jig, after that it’s like SPalm said “fun”. I have made four of these so far, and I still get a smile when the blank gets round and the knot appears.

Dwayne, Great job, although Bubinga would have been nice. May I have your autograph—-On a check maybe?
Love the picture, you look much better—small!

Hi Larry—and yes, you are funny.

Dwayne, beautiful craftsmanship. I am trying to locate a source for the blanks needed to turn rolling pins. Do you have any suggestions?

What size blanks did you start with?

Thanks for any information and help you can provide.
