The posting here started out as a Rolling Pin, however, I used reen wood and the handle on one end was cracked bad, so I changed the use from a rolling pin to a mallet. This is a piece of newly cut pecan.

The original rolling pin was 11” long and 5” in diameter, however cutting the one handle off reduced the size down to a little over 8”. Sometimes the projects change from original uses to alternative uses. Not all was lost.

That’ll work. Why get rid of something if it can be repurposed. Thanks for sharing.
