Now Jocks, this is not a Boomerang or Nulla Nulla or a club. If your wife throws it at you or hits you with it, it won’t come back to her (thank the Lord).
It is in fact a rolling pin. Tapered both ends. Don’t ask me how it works I just make them but my wife swears by it, she saw the design in a shop & put in an order to me.
No she has not hit me with it yet.
for those interested the wood is Aussie Silky Oak.

First, you say it’s not a club. Then, you say it’s a rolling pin. Make up your mind, will ya? ;)

Cool rolling pin though. I like it!

I can see how this would be PERFECT for rolling.. 3-point turns would be a breeze

Nice project Grumpy. But I will leave things like this to you. I definitely do not want anything like this in my wife’s hands she is a true ginger.

Now can you combine a boomerang with a rolling pin so that you just roll it across the dough and it rolls back to you by itself? :-)

Don’t show that to Carleen!!!! She doesn’t need to add to her arsenal!! Except thank heavens it won’t return if she throws it.

My missus wants to know if you have a design that does return, that way she can hit me over and over.

I have a “traditional” rolling pin, and a tapered french one along the lines of this one – which is the only one that gets use (in the proper non-threatening kitchen sense that is)

It Looks kinda like something that comes out of the south end of a goose. :-)

Looks like it would work though!
