Well, I am happy to announce my very first lathed rolling pin! This is made from butternut. I am new to lathe work (or is that play??) and I didn’t know how to finish the ends. So I glued some blackwalnut blocks to each end and then rounded them off and sanded down the wood where they meet. I used calibers to get the sides to match. I used salad bowl finish. I am really amazed how light this is, being butternut I thought it would be on the heavier side. This is a gift as I have NO intentions of being in the kitchen. Now I am off to figure something else to lathe.

Nice rolling pin. I like the design.

A lathe is on my list of future tools, when I get one it will keep me from playing with my other tools (toys). Nice rolling pin I like the finished ends.

the angels are wonderful.

I’m headed to the Niagara region this morning. Perhaps I’ll see some of these angels in the stores.
