This is my first attempt at the celtic knot rolling pin. Lew’s step by step instruction was very helpful! It is only 16 1/2” long because I don’t yet have a full size lathe. Diameter in the middle section is roughly 1 1/4” across, with tapers at the ends for your hands. The main wood is curly maple with mahogany and maple for the knots.

I don’t think I would call that an attempt. I would call it, knocking it out of the park.

Thats awesome, you obviously paid attention to the step by step instruction. I agree with Andy, he said it all.

Thanks everybody! Lew, I especially like your Sapele rolling pin. I’m going to try this again and might try a similar colour scheme

Have your say...
