Irish Rolling Pin.

I made this for a bit of difference to the items in our Arts & Crafts Group Annual Exhibition opening on 1st September.
It was made from a piece of bed frame pine and is 19 inches long and 3 inches square.
Finish is Varnish
Should raise a smile or two.
Don’t know about rolling but will make a really good Husband Controller.
C & C Welcome.

It certainly will have many uses. Maybe a mallet too.

Looks more like a pounding pin. LOL. Sometimes you have to shake things up a bit to get their curiosity going. I think it will get attention.

I got one similar enough… I call it my “persuader.” Don’t make me tell you twice.

As someone of irish heritage, I am deeply offended! I mean really, how are you going to make a potato pancake with that thing??? I’m going for another Guinness…

All kidding aside, thats funny! Someone needs to show what a pie made with that would look like!

I always hated round doughnuts and this might help me roll a square one. Unfortunately the bloody handle will still make a round hole… sorry BobW but it needs an upgrade.
