Little Rolling Pin

Here's a little rolling pin that my youngest niece and I turned from a piece of well-seasoned beech:


Pictured in use, rolling a batch of scone dough (hence the flour). I shaped the centre portion[1], then we made a handle each. Finish was very fine sandpaper followed by hard beeswax, applied and buffed while the lathe was still spinning.

[1] I made it very slightly domed because I find that makes it easier to manipulate the shape of the pastry than if the pin is completely parallel.
