I finally have a lathe big enough to turn the rolling pin my wife has been wanting. I figured I had better make a couple of practice pins before I make hers. (good thing cuz she wants hers shaped differently)
The walnut is 21 1/4” x 2 3/4” and the maple is 19 1/2” x 2 1/8”. The finish is beeswax on the maple and walnut oil on the walnut.
I thought I was going to be able to whip these out in no time, I was wrong. What do you mean the handles have to match? You mean there aren’t supposed to be lumps and bumps along the body? No knot holes allowed? You’re killin me Smalls!
Now that I’ve made a few, I’m going to be smart and make a template for the other styles, maybe that will make it a little easier.
-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?
