Laminated Rolling Pin
I turned two similar rolling pins from a variety of hardwood pieces which I had glued up and then cut on the diagonal to make the blanks. The brightest red colored wood is bloodwood. There are also maple, walnut and purpleheart. I contributed one of the rolling pins for our turning group's raffle at a show in October 2007. All of the turnings donated by group members comprised our "challenge" for that month's meeting, and my rolling pin received the blue ribbon. Our cat seemed to like it, too.
