Well here is the rolling pin after all of the help everyone gave me. I am more pleased with the alignment of the ellipses. I also got input from a pastry chef who indicated he preferred a more flat center section to help keep the dough a consistent thickness. This has a couple of applications of mineral oil, for a finish.

For those who requested a blog on the cutting procedures, I am in the process of taking pictures and creating the write up. I hope to post it within the next couple of days (I just know you are all a quiver with anxious anticipation).

Thanks everyone for the help and encouragement.

Beautiful work there Lew… I don;t know that I’m “all a quiver” but I sure am interested in seeing how you did this… :)

Beautiful, I enjoy gluing up odd shaped pieces of wood, & waiting to see what turns out in the end product.

Lew, at my advanced age, I really don’t quiver that often. But the beauty of your pin goes without saying. Nice job. I can hardly wait to see your process blog.
