This cutting board is made of walnut, maple and cherry. The rolling pin is the first one I have ever tried to turn. It was just for practice. It didn’t come out to bad, but it has some uneven spots here and there, but it was a great learning tool. It was turned out of a piece of firewood I had laying in the backyard.

it’s amazing that a piece of firewood can be so much fun and educational. The cutting board has stunning wood choices.

Thank you. It is nice for someone to notice that I actually chose the wood by grain and look and put them together instead of just throwing some wood together. I have found the average person who is not a woodworker does not notice the fact we go through the trouble to select each piece of wood in our projects.

Both pieces look great and have very nice grains, colors and figures. The rolling pin came really pretty. Great job!
