This was a class demo for the new semester at the high school. I grabbed a piece with a knot in it and it got bigger as I turned down the end and then most of it fell out. Well you can’t use a rolling pin with a hole in it, so I plugged it with turquoise.
It is 1 3/4” x 14” long and is finished with Danish Oil which I found is food safe when cured for 3 days.
We have had two more rolling pins made so far this semester and a goblet and lots of bowls. There is a lot of interest in turning this year and we have a waiting line for lathes. The one thing I want them to learn is how to recover from mistakes or flaws in the wood. They are saving dust from the projects for filler now!!
