  1. Thanks Lumberjocks Couldn't Have Done It Without You!!

    Well, if it wasn't for my friends here at LumberJocks, I would still be making firewood in the shop. Thanks to all who offered suggestions, web links and encouragement. With your help, I found the information needed to improve the rolling pin, posted earlier. Here is the original attempt...
  2. Celtic Knot Rolling Pin

    Celtic Knot French style Rolling Pin. With homage to Lew and his blog, I finally broke in my new lathe and took a stab at the Celtic Knot rolling pin….oak with walnut design elements and end caps. The ends of the pin are tapered with a flat center section, and finished with BLO….18 inches long...
  3. Cherry and Ash Rolling Pin

    My wife has needed and wanted a good rolling pin for many years. I just got back into woodworking after over 2 decades off. On the weekend I posted my first project, this is my second. The handles are made of cherry, and the main roller is ash with a center accent piece of cherry. I started...
  4. First Rolling Pins

    I finally have a lathe big enough to turn the rolling pin my wife has been wanting. I figured I had better make a couple of practice pins before I make hers. (good thing cuz she wants hers shaped differently) The walnut is 21 1/4" x 2 3/4" and the maple is 19 1/2" x 2 1/8". The finish is...
  5. Celtic Knot Rolling Pin

    I originally saw this project and blog posted by lew here. He has written a very detailed blog that is very useful when starting out. I gave this one away to my sister for Christmas, but will probably end up making more based off of the reaction that it drew from others :). The two woods are...
  6. Rolling Pin

    Back in the day, I was a professional pastry chef. I became accustomed to using a traditional French rolling pin, which is somewhat thicker in the center and tapers towards the ends. It's been 10 years since I've worked in a kitchen, and I don't do much at home, maybe a few to a half-dozen...
  7. Rolling pin

    Oak and walnut accents. Thanks for the tutorial. Ten more to go. The finish is mineral oil and bees wax from my own hives.
  8. Rolling Pin

    Laminated rolling pin. Its comprised of walnut poplar and cherry, not a difficult project but has excellent results, finished with beeswax and orange oil.
  9. French Rolling Pin

    It finally warmed up enough yesterday that I could get into my shop and do a little work. I mostly cleaned and changed oil in the cars, but while I was at it. I turned this cherry rolling pin. It is 1.75 in diameter and 20 inches long. The sloped edges start at the 2.5 inch mark.
  10. My first rolling pin

    Having getting a bed extension for my mini jet lathe wanted to try a rolling pin. glued up some cherry, maple and ash. Now I know what not to do.
  11. First laminated rolling pin

    Still on the lathe in the pic but that is the finished pin. I left the ends flared out to give two diameters for my hands. 18" long, laminated yellow and purple heart with some local cherry. Coated simply in mineral oil. First project post to LJ. Also first project to come out of my new barn...
  12. Brownie Points with Mother in Law

    This is a rolling pin that I turned for my mother in law. This was an excellent project for me and learned some really good skills I'll continue to use. I used walnut and maple for the pin, and hard maple for the handles. There are 10 lines total on the handles to represent her 10 grandkids...
  13. Dumpling Roller Pin

    Went to Silver Dollar City and watched a woodturner make one of these so I asked for info and bought a piece of cherry and came home and turned my own.
  14. Rolling Pin

    Rolling Pin Wood - Maple and Walnut Finish - Butcher Block Oil This is a surprise gift for someone. I originally made it for my mother to replace one she has had FOREVER with a broken handle. One evening I was visiting her and asked to see the one she has all on the pretense of seeing the...
  15. Another Rolling Pin

    This is the finished rolling pin from the steps, in the blog, for making them. This one has a slight taper from the center to the ends. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas next year!
  16. Segmented French Rolling Pins

    I had a decently thick piece of material as the waste cut-off from a big-block butcher block that I decided to turn down to a cylinder on my lathe and turn into a rolling pin. I posted that in my Etsy shop and someone liked the look of the piece, but wanted one that was longer. The original -...
  17. Rolling pin

    I made this pin while on vacation at my parents. I took some wood for my dad to use. I put a piece on the lathe and started it thinking Dad would finish it, but he decided to go inside and take a nap. Can't blame him… it was hot in his shed. So I kept going and by the time he came back I had it...
  18. Rolling Pin

    I had an urge to make another rolling pin. I kept the handles intact on this one. I had tried to use dowels on others to let the handles roll, but had alignment issues! Maple, Walnut, and Bloodwood. 22" overall with a body that is 12". I finished it with Watco Danish Oil because the Wood...
  19. Christmas presents

    Finally getting around to posting my Christmas presents for my family. I did get them done in time, but just barely. Timing was made worse because one of my daughters lives out of town and had to work Christmas, so we celebrated a few days early. Many thanks to others on LJ for ideas. One of...
