Spiral Segmented Rolling Pin

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Spiral Segmented Rolling PinThis is a project that I have had in mind to make for a long time, but finally had the time and resources. It is a spiral segmented rolling pin made from Western Big Leaf Maple, Honduras Mahogany, Walnut wood, and a poplar dowel. It contains 269 pieces of wood, making it a challenging, yet fun project to do. I wouldn't call it a traditional or a french style rolling pin, but rather a “crossover.” It has characteristics of both; it is a little bigger in diameter than a french, but smaller than a traditional. It has the feel of a french, but at the same time a little more heft like a traditional. It has two inch long maple caps on each ends so you can't see the dowel. This rolling pin is around 21” long from end to end.For those of you who make segmented pens, this is basically like a “big pen.” When making spiral segmented pens, you rotate the segments around the pen tube. In this case, I spiraled the segments around the poplar dowel.Step 1: Make the blank

A tray with some new features

A tray with some new featuresThis was another serving tray includes blind dovetails. The wood is aspen and walnut. I had some issues with creating handles so decided to go with some black metal handles which is a different feature from prior serving trays that I put together. Also something went wrong during my final assembly with the blind dovetails so the tray did not set level. I ended up adding some little walnut feet that allowed me to level things out (final picture is the bottom side showing the “feet”). Finished with General Finishes High Performance.
