Here is a French Rolling pen based upon my son’s specific instructions (He’s the chef in the family). He said he’ll want to make his own later.

This is made out Curly Cherry. It is 1 3/4” in the middle thick and is 16” long.

Your son can make another one if he wants, but it can’t possibly be this beautiful. Nice turn Kerux. Thanks for sharing.

The tapered edges are to allow you to roll not only forward/backward but also right and left without lifting the rolling pin to change direction. The traditional flat ones with metal handles don’t allow this directional roll and are quite clumsy when compared.

VERY NICE results with your curly cherry. I have some I bought from a fellow who works at a mill that has no use for figured wood as they supply wood for furniture that requires straight grained wood. I’ve also seen some nicely quilted cherry. Not quite as quilted as the maple handle I feature, but still interesting grain.

These would make great Christmas presents! (Do you need my address?) :)
