These were ordered by a lady in the park. They are all 19” long and made of mesquite, One had a little sap wood remaining before it cleaned up and one had a knot hole through it that is filled with turquoise.

The are finished with Danish Oil and buffed and waxed.

Cheers, Jim

Very nice Jim.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Good job Jim. All the sap wood in my mesquite usually acquires worm holes rapidly.

Great use for smaller pieces of mesquite (which is all I can find growing around here). Is there a slight barrel taper (curve) end to end on those?

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi Brian, I dream about this stuff when I’m sleeping!! When I awake, if have a plan for the day!!!!!!!!!

Hi Bruce. I have turned these down from 4” diameter pieces before and have had worm holes in them too. The way I make them is to have the center flat section half of the entire length and then taper both ends to a smaller diameter so the sides of the roller clear the dough. Some have more taper than others…clearance is all that is needed. Your hands roll over the tapered sections.

Cheers, Jim

Your getting great at making cooking utensils. You should sell those on line.

The color of mesquite is so warm.
The lady in the park will treasure those.
