Had some surplus 1 7/16 thick oak lying in the corner so decided to make my wife a Ravioli Rolling Pin. Cut the oak into 3.5 inch squares and glued them all together. Once i squared the block up on the table saw I cut a 3/4 dado down the center on each side. Wish I had a lathe in my shop at this point but i ended up cutting 3/4 inch squares and numbered each piece inside the dado to keep them in order. Cut some walnut to size to fit the dado and glued and clamped everything together for a couple of hours. You will want to cut the walnut runners to end up being little proud for sanding.

Just gave it to my wife …she loves it

Very nice, I made a couple of these myself for Christmas presents. I have to ask what the turkey feather is for?

tutorial starts with head chopping, working its way into feather plucking, then cooking and eating, feathers are a plus after the blessed event.

Nicely done!

I have heard that coconut oil is better than mineral oil for rolling pins. Better antimicrobial properties.
