well the holidays are coming fast and SWMBO requested a dough rolling board,so whats a woodworker to do but get to work and make one.so as a kind jesture i decided to throw in a rolling pin,why not.so here are the stats you guys love.board size is 28”x 20” x 3/4” birch consisting of 3 pc’s joined with domino’s.the back ledge board and cleats for the pin to rest are attached with screws covered by walnut plugs,wife hate’s when i use plugs.the rolling pin is solid cocobolo 1-3/4” x 22” tapered on the ends slightly.the finish is a blend of mineral oil and wax.rubber bumpers on the bottom so board will stay in place.wife is very happy and ill get lots of stuff i really shouldn’t eat,but it’s the holidays,right.all comments good bad or crude (lbd) are welcome.
sorry about the pic’s being a little dark,flash was not working well today.
also this board will be stored under the table it’s on so when needed she can just pull it out and use.

also want to give a thanks to lj fatmansat for the inspiration on this.

Nice work,
Love the rolling pin.
Cocobolo is my favorite. If you look up wood in the dictionary, it should have a picture of Cocobolo

Fine job pottz. Your wife will be happy now and you can continue woodworking. The Cocobolo made an excellent pin.
