This rolling pin is another item that I thought would fit in with the harvest theme for our show this weekend .
Made from a piece of very light coloured walnut and a piece of maple that where not much use for anything but of perfect use for this . Carefully cutting around cracks and taking out the bad twist in both boards I managed to get a good turning black .After turning it on the lathe and giving it a good polish with beeswax and then as a special touch adding a couple Canadian one dollar coins I am kind of liking it and I am sure that my daughter will also when I make it part of her Christmas present as one of her hobby’s is baking .

Comments always welcome good or not but remember this is the first rolling pin I made but not the last they are just too much fun and a good way to use some not so good lumber ..

Gotta admit, it’s sure worth a lot more than the $2 on the ends. Does one of the dollars show this year’s date? Nice touch, and I’m sure she’ll love it. Beautifully done.

Another rolling pin, tapered towards the ends from the middle…

... but, this one required a sophisticated GLUE-UP to make the COOL design in the finished product!

More fun!

Didn’t Jim, jakosh, recently make some of them?

I agree with Joe, good job on the glue up to image the final results. Glad to see you into turning.
Now we’re using dollars instead of pennies? Ha ha. Have fun at the show.

That is really cool, Klaus. I have to have the kids at school look at this to give them some ides for laminating before turning and to see how the finished product looks.

Thanks for sharing….........Cheers, Jim

I think it is a very nice piece and anyone would have a right to be the proud owner/maker of it!

Klaus, Stuff I have tossed you turn into a project. LOL! I’ve not seen a rolling pin that’s tapered. It’s got a great design.
