« Part 2: New blank Part 3 of Striped rolling pin series no next part

Much better…. As you can see after the cleanup, the pieces are much more consistent:

The pieces were .75” square. Notice that this means that when the blank is turned, the corners of the dark pieces will be taken off first, and the width of the dark pieces will be wider than the white. But as the diameter shrinks, the width of the dark pieces will get narrower, and the white pieces will remain constant. The stripes were equal width at 1.9”.

You can also see that the taper at the end, had a consistent narrowing this time. Also the ends now have a more interesting pattern as well with the black center.

Now to clean up the ends, sand, and finish. I am much happier with this result.
