Latest Projects

It’s been a while since I did much work in the shop. I spent most of the summer doing outside projects, etc. that can’t be done in the winter time. (Or at least I don’t want to do them in the winter). In the last few weeks I’ve gotten back to doing a little work on the lathe. Here are my newest completed projects.

Maple-Walnut Rolling Pin

I just finished this maple and walnut wood turned rolling pin. This is actually the monthly project for the local turning club meeting this coming Wednesday.
Overall length of rolling pin is 21 1/4", the rolling part is 12 3/4" long by 2 1/2" in diameter. Finish is pure Tung Oil (not polymerized). The handles are attached to each other by a through rod that turns freely inside the pin. Works much nicer than the one piece ones.

This is my first post on my new website. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on my website. It is a work in progress.

Thanks,

Ralph
