I tried to make a variety of pins this time. Bottom one is pistachio, the middle one is mesquite and the top one is pecan with many worm tracks in it ( and turquoise inlay in all of them).

They are finishes with Danish oil and then mineral oil and buffed.

Cheers, Jim

Nicely done, Jim!

My wife prefers the ones with the taper from the center to each end. Not sure why.

Mesquite inlay? Your mesquite must be different than mine or I’m too old to spot it

Beautiful selection….. lew, I think the reason she likes the tapered ones are that you can change directions to cover a large area easier by moving one hand or the other a little faster than the other. A flat one just wants to go back and forth more often. And to answer your questions on how I know this, ” Ask me no questions and I will tell you no lies ”. LOL. Great job on these Jim !!! Mel

I REALLY like that mesquite one in the center…although I wouldn’t complain if I was the lucky recipient of any of them. Nice work.

Thanks for all the nice comments. It is turquoise inlay and I changed it.
I try to make the center FLAT section half of the total length and make them 19” long, The pistachio piece had a big crack that showed up in the turning and had to be made shorter.
More are in the making!

Hi Brian. I think your pin was made from that cedar log. It must have dried out. Maybe it can be spun on the jointer to true it up!!!!!

Cheers, Jim

Just keep those gorgeous rolling pins away for an angry lady as it’d be a crying shame to damage them across someone’s scone.
