Kind of looks poplar to me. Looks good though.

I think it’s Elm or Sycamore … Wha’did I win? :-)
I do have a question though. As one who cooks and bakes, how long are the handles? They look to only be 2” or 2.5”, which would be short for a guy to use comfortably.

Joe you can put your hands on the balls it will be ok…so you like a long handle, guess this one was not meant for you I will be happy to make you one to meet your specification…I was trying to make it all balanced, ratio, guess I missed the mark…

Oh no, I wasnt complaining… just making an observation. I had one several years ago and when I got rid of it (because the handles were too short and uncomfortable for me) my wife told me she liked it because the handles were shorter and fit her hands better.
You can send me that one or make me another one (with longer handles) Your choice… Either way, I’ll love it

My guess is ELM. I turned one not too long ago for a friend and it looks the same.

Ok it is likely Elm, and Joe you need a French style rolling pin that our friend Lew makes post number two and he makes them very well for sure…one size fits all hands….and Lew the way you inlay have you ever try a pool cue stick seems a perfect application for your pin style, just a thought

Looks great. Can’t say if it is Elm or not, but it is not Sycamore. Cause Sycamore is neither hard nor heavy. No matter, cause it looks good whatever it is.
