...no, not the green kind of dough.
A few weeks ago, a neighbor down the street had an old crib that she was getting rid of. Evidently, it was not safe for re-sale and wanted to know if I was interested in it. “Of course”....I hate to see wood go to waste. After busting it down into pieces – it was decision time. There was some nice maple underneath all of that finish.
So, I turned a couple of the spindles on the lathe into french rolling pins. Actually, I should say “we” since my son played an active part in the production – he’s the prince of sanding. And loves to vacuum up sawdust!
Pretty simple project but the best part was spending some quality time in the shop with my boy.
