an heirloom *PIC*

Keith Tompkins
>I recently received a package in the mail....it was a gift for my wife from my friend and fellow turner Ron Mower. Ron frequently inhabits WC but doesn't post photos of his work.....(until now!)

A little background, my wife is a professionally trained bakery chef, so the gift was a wonderful surprise for her.

More background, we have all heard of Shaker furniture...well, this is a copy of an authentic Shaker double rolling pin! Since I live in the same area that the real Shakers inhabited, the gift is even more special. (Our wood organization meets in the old Shaker meeting house!)

This piece is cherry, the craftsmanship, like all of Ron's work, is supurb! This will become a treasured family heirloom. Ron, thanks so much!
