Just got in from the last camping trip of the season. Time to winterize and wait for spring 2016 (bummer).

Back to rolling pins. I came across several vintage wood rolling pins at a reasonable price so now I have 3 rolling pins that I think can be carved into something. Anyone ever work with these? I have seen a cpl vids on you tube carving a wood spirit on a rolling pin. Any thoughts on what wood they are made from? I am guessing hard maple

Most of the rolling pins I've seen were either hard maple or beech. Hard, but tight grain that can take detail.

I will be harvesting as soon as the ground drys up its wet muddy at the moment but theres plenty of time before the sap rises. There 3-4 months to do it in .I am lucky I have about 50 2years seasoned hazel and about 50 1 years seasoned so I hope to harvest about 50 .The shanks that are two years old I will straighten cut back to 1.4 meters and sell them. Good shanks fetch a fair price between 50- 6o dollars for five plus poatage
