This is a mesquite rolling pin I made for Jeannie in our park who makes cinnamon rolls for our park group every Friday. It is 2” diameter x 19” long and finished with Danish Oil and buffed and waxed.

Along with this , my student ,Bill, made a broken column for the Easter Star group of the Masonic lodge. It is also made from mesquite and finished with Danish Oil. Bill did a great job turning the column because the piece he started with was way off balance. The last shot is of Bill (I call him grasshopper) and his wife.

Cheers, Jim

Great way to spread you talent Jim and teaching others while having fun yourself. They both look like fine work.

Thank you all for the nice comment on this pin. Jeannie really liked it and it will be used this Thursday night on the cinnamon roll dough.

Hi John. I like watching the other guys turn. I feel like an evangelist here by training guys on the lathe. I have another student, Rick, and he has made 4 bowls and is filling them with turquoise before the final turning. I trained Bill last year and he bought a lathe at home and Rick plans to get one too! I give them the word from Lyle Jamieson on the use of each tool and then watch them for while to make sure the caught on to the technique. They use the scrapers in the negative rake mode and none got a catch so far. Rick is even sharpening the bowl gouges with the Jamieson sharpening rig I made for the shop!

Cheers, Jim
