My first rolling pins!

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My first rolling pins!Gifts for upcoming birthdays. I saw some of these online and wanted to try them. It was also an excuse to get more experience on the lathe.These are made of maple, cherry, and walnut. They are 1.75” diameter in the middle, with a 4” taper at the ends to 1.25” on the ends. This leaves a 12” workable flat surface in the middle. I used sandpaper on a board to smooth it nice and flat in the middle, and work my taper smooth on the ends. I only sanded to 220 grit, as I read that you do not want to sand them too smooth, or they will not coat well with flour. I did finish with mineral oil, but no wax for the same reason.I am happy with the way they came out, but I am not a baker… I await the final verdict from the pastry chefs, and expect payment in treats so I can help with the evaluation! :-)

Furnished content.

Medium Sized lumber cartMedium Sized lumber cartOverall dimensions are approximately 60”W x 17 1/2”D x 50”HI found this design on youtube: link below. The video has a link to a place where you can purchase the plans which I did.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMMKFDCpiisThis is a good sized cart for my needs. It allows me to move my partial sheets out of the way and it doesn't take up excessive room itself.I built it according to the plans except I added extra 2×4 where the casters attach. Below is a link to the casters I usedhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08G1GWFLL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
