Yes, more Rolling Pin! Did some experimenting with cuts and dimensions.

Right most- playing with scraps- Maple, Sapele, Walnut and Cherry.

Second from right- Maple, Walnut and Cherry. Smaller diameter pin and the center insert is thicker than the outside ones. The total insert width is still 3/8”.

Left most- Sapele, Maple and Walnut.

All the others are Maple, Walnut (and Cherry).

Sanded thru 320 and then burnished with turning shavings.

All are finished with mineral oil.

Thanks for looking!

Lew: These look great. How’s your supply of Sapele holding out? I’ve got Sipo (Utle) now.

I wish when I did experimenting things turned out that nice. Mine usually explode. Great job and neat design on the pins.

Very nice projects. They almost look like cigars with fancy wrappers. Either way very fancy pins.

Someday (if I live long enough), I hope to make a rolling pin half as lovely as yours! Thanks for sharing.

Great job Lew. Just don’t let them get into the hands of a juggler . . . or maybe juggling pins might be another type of project for you . . . Hmmm. They really are beautiful.
