Picture #1 is the cutting board that I designed, using somewhat of a southwest design and Thunderbird, if you look at the center design long enough, you will notice somewhat of a 3D effect. going in both directions. Picture #2 is the rolling pin that goes with the board for the gift, there is 6 different woods laminated, then angle cut, and reversed glued and turned, and it features rolling Celtic Knot handles. Picture #3 is just the same board and rolling pin, along with my wife’s rolling pin in the foreground. She has used this for the last 4 years. Lots of pastry, and homemade noodles made with this one. Picture #4 is just the two rolling pins together. My wife’s pin is just 4 different laminated woods with laminated handles, the gift pin has 6 laminated woods, with Celtic Knot handles.
Picture #5 just shows the underside of the board, I use glue and stainless steel screws to fasten these handles onto the board, notice that there are also 4 rubber bumper feet to keep this board elevated, also keeps it from sliding around on slick counter tops. Picture #6. is just a grouping of all three together.

I saw a 2×4 posted here around 17 hours ago and it made Daily Top 3!

(Rockbuster) Don’s project here looks so good this should make it to the top level or even better like Editors Choice. This is some very nice work here the pins are my favorite. Some very clever thinking went into this project. The work on the pin handles are a nice added touch. High End craftsmanship all around.
Thanks for sharing!
