  1. Mother's Day Rolling pin

    So, I have been wood turning for the better part of 5 months now, and I have made a wide variety of small projects i.e. pens, yo-yo's, lidded boxes…things of that nature. This is my first "bigger" project. I glued up 4 quarter stock of Ash and African Padauk, to make this 3 inch wide and 20...
  2. Oh No! Not More Rolling Pins!!

  4. Well, My Christmas Shopping Is Done!!!!

    Just finished my Christmas "shopping" for this year!! Well, I still have to devise some sort of holders for these, yet. I was thinking of something along the lines of a flat piece with a cove cut along the length but because the rolling pins are tapered from the center, they would not lay flat...

  11. Olivewood French Rolling Pin/Candy Dish/Nut "Coffee Style" Cup

    I recently built these three items- all of which were turned on my lathe. The first, an Olivewood French rolling pin, measures around 14 inches overall. I had an interesting time making it, as it destroyed 2 cheapo grizzly live centers in the process. The second item, is a little candy dish- I...
  12. Matching Rolling Pin and Cutting Board

    I made this wonderful rolling pin roller pin style with stainless steel carriage bolts and pex tubing. The wood is walnut and maple. It was my first ever rolling pin and I love how it turned out. The cutting boards were simple to make. If you would like to see my complete build process, you...
  13. Rolling in the dough from the crib...

    ...no, not the green kind of dough. A few weeks ago, a neighbor down the street had an old crib that she was getting rid of. Evidently, it was not safe for re-sale and wanted to know if I was interested in it. "Of course"....I hate to see wood go to waste. After busting it down into pieces - it...

  17. Spiral Segmented Rolling Pin

It is a spiral segmented rolling pin made from Western Big Leaf Maple, Honduras Mahogany, Walnut wood, and a poplar dowel. It contains 269 pieces of wood, making it a challenging, yet fun...
  18. First Attempt at Celtic Knot Rolling Pin

    This is my first attempt at the celtic knot rolling pin. Lew's step by step instruction was very helpful! It is only 16 1/2" long because I don't yet have a full size lathe. Diameter in the middle section is roughly 1 1/4" across, with tapers at the ends for your hands. The main wood is curly...
  19. Cutting board and French Rolling Pin

    This cutting board is made of walnut, maple and cherry. The rolling pin is the first one I have ever tried to turn. It was just for practice. It didn't come out to bad, but it has some uneven spots here and there, but it was a great learning tool. It was turned out of a piece of firewood I...

    Well here my first real French rolling pin after my trial run with a log yesterday. It is made of Walnut and Maple that I laminated together yesterday. It is 20 inches long and 1.65 inches in diameter. I am pleased with it and I know it will get better as I make more.
