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.

Nice rolling pins! what angle did you cut them at?

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!
