After seeing the French rolling pin I made for my grandson
my wife said she wanted one also. Only, she wanted a full sized pin. The one I made for the grandson is 16"wide X 1 1/2" center, tapering to 1" at the ends. To fit the hands of a nine year old. The full sized one pictured here is 20" wide X 1 3/4" center, tapering to 1" at the ends. Since we are sitting around the house watching Gustav and the clock, I had to do something or go nerts. So, I went into the shop and made shavings. This was inside. Wood is Arkansas maple and has some nice figure. A light coat of mineral oil finished it. Wife is happy, that's all that matters. Sorry for the quick and dirty photo.
