The first Christmas gift is done




My daughter is quite the cook. I thought what could I make something that you cannot get at BBB. This is a rolling pin that has a celtic knot in it. It is maple and wenge. It takes 5 days to make with all of the gluing that is required. It is finished with a mix of mineral oil and wax that I mix up.

Other projects are in the glue up stage. So more to come soon.

That's amazing. The glue up must be pretty complex.

Thanks. It helps to follow in other's foot steps so I do not make the same mistake once. The trick is the fixture that holds the square blank when you make the cuts for the wenge s. It does not look like much until you turn it, that is when the magic happens!

What a beautiful gift! Can't wait to see what else you're working on.

You are quite the craftsman chief. Beautiful work and a treasure of a gift.
