Well here they are, all but one, which is on its way to California.

Five are made from Walnut, Maple and Cherry. Two have Purple Heart- Mimi’s favorite color- and one has Cherry sides/end due to a quantity miscalculation- I mean design modification.

Now on to the pens!!

As always- comments, criticisms and critiques are always welcome.

Thanks for looking,

Very nice Lew! I like how the lines play tricks on the eyes.

Great Lew. Maybe we need another workshop.

Two people, Ed and Jack dalton are making rolling pins for Christmas presents

Jack is doing the two slices for accent wood and leaving the middle slice in place and not cutting it out. He was triming one of the pins and hit his Sawstop with an anuminum pushstick. (New blade and new cartridge)

These are really nice. The skill to get that kind of repeatability is awesome. Good work.

Having made a few of these as cutting boards, I think you did a great job. They will be super trays. We are in the business of design modifications. I have also modified a lot of other people’s designs! Thanks for sharing these. Do you have a table saw jig for cutting the angled cuts?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
