New Rolling Pin Holders

Been working on a new design for my rolling pins. Seems not every one is enthralled with the horizontal display holders.

These are my latest ideas (first to last pix)

Counter top display
Wall Display

Both the wall and counter top displays are similar. The only real difference is the bottom “foot”

The wall display without the pin
When resawing the walnut, a pleasant surprise- some tiger grain

Finished with a couple of coats of semigloss poly, buffed with 0000 steel wool and a layer of Briwax Rustic Pine.

Thanks for looking!

That’s a really attractive way to display your unusual rolling pins. I like that dovetail and contrasting wood. Great idea!

Great designs Lew. My wife keeps hers in a drawer. Sorry.

Dusty- Thanks!! I was really surprised when I saw it!

Pete and Ron- Thanks! I was hoping to add a little “class” with the dove tail!

Eric- The only problem I can see with the counter top version is the height.

Karson- Thanks! The drawer is good, too!

Well…...............count me in as “enthralled.”

The pins themselves are very very nice and the holders are real beauties.

Good job!

I really love your rolling pins! I should order one while the waiting line is reasonable!

Cool item, Lew. Our rolling pin is seeing weekly duty on pizza night, and at other times…......so never thought of displaying it.

Still doing stuff for work. For the last few months the only time I got in the shop was at the vacation house. But I think the end is in sight…..........
