Does the porosity of mahogany affect how it works as a rolling pin?

Mark,
I think it does. I have made pins from Sapele and they are very striking in color but not really “tight”. It is porous also. Most who purchase these pin use them for decorations. I have found similar problems with Walnut. Looks nice but not the best choice for a “working” pin.

They could also be used to thwart off a burglar.

True, Roger! And with a thorough soaking of mineral oil- the blood just wipes right off!
