Playing with the lathe; to TRY to teach myself a little about doing some decent turning.

I believe this is maple; but my be wrong as I am poor at wood identification. It came from my usual source = firewood pile.

It is a total of 11 inches long and has a diameter of 2-3/4 inches for the roller. It is one piece and has no finish except the natural sheen of the sanded and burnished wood. The handles are 1 by 2 & 5/8ths inches.

I actually used a cardboard paper towel tube to put the burnish on it. Worked much better than I thought it would.

Looks great, very consistent across the length of the roller.
