Celtic Knot French style Rolling Pin. With homage to Lew and his blog, I finally broke in my new lathe and took a stab at the Celtic Knot rolling pin….oak with walnut design elements and end caps. The ends of the pin are tapered with a flat center section, and finished with BLO….18 inches long. Next up, a maple one.

Hi John, Great piece.

I see that you follow Karson´s proposal to get a diamond in the crosses.(Was Karson or Lew, can´t remember) I´ll tell you, that I am still breaking my mind to find out that procedure

I will re read the tutorial
