Well, My Christmas Shopping Is Done!!!!

Just finished my Christmas “shopping” for this year!!

Well, I still have to devise some sort of holders for these, yet. I was thinking of something along the lines of a flat piece with a cove cut along the length but because the rolling pins are tapered from the center, they would not lay flat. Still thinking on this. But anyway, the pins are finished.

Not sure who is going to get the Sapele one- either my brother or my high school shop teacher.

Thanks for looking!

Will they go in a box? iif so you could just have a couple coved pieces of wood on each end to hold it in the box…

Good Job Sir.
