Finally getting around to posting my Christmas presents for my family. I did get them done in time, but just barely. Timing was made worse because one of my daughters lives out of town and had to work Christmas, so we celebrated a few days early.

Many thanks to others on LJ for ideas. One of my daughters is a pastry chef and she wanted a rolling pin with squared corners. Not very fancy, which is why I opted for the diagonal stripes. Wood on the cutting boards and rolling pins are made of walnut, maple, padouk, and cherry.

The last picture is a napkin holder made with the leftovers from a lazy susan project I made earlier. It is sort of the complimentary to the lazy susan and both sit on our dining table. Maple and walnut.

Looks really fancy for me. Attractive and great combination of wood and finish. Love the rolling pins and the grooves on the boards.

My daughter-in-law has chosen the pin on the left as the one she would like to match her cutting board. Any tips on how to do a good glue-up? What dimensions are you using?

Henry,

My main inspiration for the Pins was Sam’s post http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30186. They ended up about 2-1/4” x about 20”. The one on the left got chewed on by her dog so I had to re-turn it to smooth it back out so it is a bit smaller now. I just sliced up a bunch of different thickness woods on my bandsaw, put them together in a way to try to be pleasing and glued them up in a block. I cut both pins out of one block on each end at about 10 degrees, I believe. I then had enough left over from 2 sections left that I could flip them around and glue it up for another one for my wife (the fourth picture).
