I am going to visit family some 2000 miles away this summer. I will be bringing them these (and many more) rolling pins because they will handle travel well and they don’t take a lot of space.
I started with maple blanks and but them at angles to glue in other woods and veneers at angles before turning them.

Very nice, just got a lathe and tried to do one but failed miserably, I’m determined , practice, practice, practice. I hope to some even half as nice as yours.

Very nice. Love the diagonal laminate effect! Think you can get them on an airplane as carry-on? Or are you driving the 2k miles?

We will be driving, and no I don’t think we can get them on carry-on even as a domestic flight, but we could check them as baggage and have them get lost.

Thanks for the compliments.

They were cut at various unmeasured angles. Whatever angle I could secure them in my table-saw sled though I like it better when they are at a low angle (when the inserted piece is longer). The tough part, and I did not always succeed, is when gluing in the second insert which intersects the first- it is VERY hard to keep everything lined up so that the first insert matches.

To keep things line up, do not cut completely thru the blank. Leave about 1/16” of material holding the blank together. Slide your inserts into the slot and glue into place.

That’s a great suggestion, thanks Lew! I have very close tolerances with using wood close to the final size, but I can make it slightly bigger blank and do that. You are my rolling pin hero!
