Those are lookin good…. You should do a build blog on these. The OSB has some neat designs to it one would not expect to see from it. How many pieces of OSB get thrown out that could be made into rolling pins?

Very nice, just like the vases you showed earlier. I’m wondering along with everybody else what kind of finish you’re using on these.

Dean, I gotta tell ya, ya do great work with that stuff. I gave it a try after you posted your earlier projects and failed miserably. My biggest problems were heavy tear out and difficult to sand. Didn’t even make it to finishing. Would you post your process for us? Or, maybe you get a better grade of OSB that I do. :-)

Very nice! Do you figure them to be functional or just decorative?

Love the fact that you’re doing something I have never seen before. Gets the brain going in a whole new direction. I hope they are functional. You’ve created another item on many people’s bucket list.

Very nice looking. I would worry about using them unless they were 100% sealed somehow. Otherwise a massive bacteria trap in the gaps.

Outstanding. Just like the other vessels you turned. You never think OSB could look so good.

Very innovative. How in the world do you fill the pores in OSB? Epoxy?

As they say in Newfoundland, that’s “some different” ! I’m wondering how hard the OSB is, as rolling pins are unually made of pretty hard wood.
