Pam took another wood working class this week. There were 4 students making a beautiful rolling pin from 4 different woods (Black Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Padauk). It was a 4 day x 3 hour class. Ron (from Canada) was the instructor – just great and very patient. Pam really enjoyed woodturning. She is going to buy her own 4 jaw chuck so she can keep making stuff in the woodshop and not have to borrow a chuck.
The rolling pin is made from plans from: Woodturning Design Magazine, Spring 2004 (Issue No. 1) – The Premier Issue. You could hardly read the instructions (a copy of a copy of a fax), so I found an old copy of the magazine for sale on Amazon and bought it. Click on the magazine cover to see the instructions.
I also found a very similar version for sale on Etsy for $100!
