My first attempt at making a Celtic knot. The rolling pin is made from Maple with Cherry Handles. I did only a half knot on the handles using Maple as an accent. The Rolling Pin Knot is composed of Cherry and Black Walnut. Finished with food grade Mineral Oil. The 3rd. picture was before the finish was applied.
I learned a lot from this experience that will increase my speed and accuracy. Thanks for looking.

Thanks men! Monte there are a number of videos on you tube Joel Green builds one from a kit blank (I built mine from scratch) @ called Turning a Rolling Pin Made Easy. on this clip he dose not do a full knot but the content is sufficient (this is what I used to get started) Hope this points you in the right direction, if I can be of any help I will be glad to do so (if I can?)

This rolling pin is a beautiful piece of work, that Celtic knot came out great, and the color arrangement is spot on. Great work, thanks for showing.
