Very nice. That wood is crazy! The traditional rolling pin is a show piece but I favor the french style rolling pin in use.

I’ve had some Elm that was just loaded with the birds eye look—the grain pattern will surprise you from the same tree—we cut alot of Elm around here so i use alot of it for stick projects just because of the wild grain makes great chests and trunks.

Hey Jeff! Whatthehell did you do to the thread you did on the spatulas last month? http://lumberjocks.com/projects/77625
I had favorited it so I could go back one day and make some. Now all you have is a pic of a disc sander sitting on your lathe.
What’s up wit dat?

Joe you crack me up buddy…yeah Stirring the pot….smoking the pot… They work well for scraping stuff out of bowls or jars even for chopping ground beef while frying, flipping stuff to, and all without leaving a mark on your pan or bowl or melting toxic Chinese plastic into your macaroni and cheese yuck…
