Made these stands from pine, 5 ply and a piece of dowel. The rolling pins by themselves hadn’t sold but since making the stands have sold 2 of them and the third is in a Veterans Wood working show in Melbourne. Cartoon character from the internet and burnt on.

So Cool!

I really like the design of using the support bar across the front.

Hi Theresa, Tried selling the rolling pins at the weekly flea market without success, put them on the stands last Sunday and sold both of them. Hey Pat, we are not allowed to export lethal weapons. LOL. Thanks all for the comments

Great idea for showing the pins and make them talking and joking point.
Lock them up and keep the key with you.

Thanks Sam and Chris. Strange how something simple makes the difference in selling or not.
