    Using up excess stock

    OK, so I got a wild hair and glued up a bunch of stuff I have had laying around since my scrolling days. Ended up with enough stock to turn these French rolling pins. A little bit of everything. Cherry, Maple, Curly Maple, Mahogany, Walnut, Curly White Oak. The Walnut is from a project I made in high school 45 years ago.

    45 years? Almost as impressive as those rolling pins. Very nice, Terry.

    Really cool idea Terry.

    My failing goal was to clear all my small scrap up by the end of the year which ain't going to happen at this point given other circumstances, but a handful of these would go a long ways towards making the new years shop a bit cleaner.

    Yeah! Those are really neat. Those are "Hang on the wall" rolling pins. That way everybody can see them and that beautiful wood won't get flour and stuff all over.

    Enjoy,

    Very nice, Terry.

    BTW, you don't look old enough to have been in high school 45 years ago.

    My mistake. I graduated in 1968, so it was 46 years ago.

    Either you've held up well, or that's a 20 year old avatar picture. I graduated 9 years after you did, and pretty much all of my friends look like old guys now. I'm the only exception, of course.
