This is a Myrtlewood French rolling pin that I made some time ago and has been lying around my shop since. I didn’t really know what to do with it until I hit upon the idea of a base that would make it look like a rocket. The base, as well as the fins are also made of myrtlewood. Finished with butcher block oil.

Since it’s a French rolling pin, it’s easy to equate it to Tin-Tin’s rocket. Great job, thanks for sharing.

It’s art and it’s functional. Ray Bradbury would like it. Nice work little brother.

Thanks guys for all your comments. LJ is such a great place to display your work and to get feedback from peer groups. I’ve noticed that most art societies are focused on painting or pottery and don’t truly understand what we do. Picking up a saw and putting it to wood is just as artistic as brush to canvas.

Have your say...
