thanks all , we try to convince people to use our products. There just as good and usable as grandmas rolling pins and will clean up. I think about just as many are purchased by people who intend to use them as they are given as gifts. Once in a while a collector will come around. I like that, they nearly always purchase at least one. The curly bowls are a favorite of mine.Not too many turners around here use it . I have lots of curly wood and love to use it even in my flatwork.

I guess I should have read your reply a little slower.
Judy and I have a small woodworking business that we scratch out a living with. We do the craft show thing spring through fall and in the winter I try to get my custom orders done. Judy makes puzzles and beautiful baskets, our main seller.

I do cutting boards and started turning last year with the rolling pins. I thought I would try the bowls this year. Since the economy went to pot its been tough making a living with it but we're hangin' in there. Here is a pic of our favorite craft display

We do the farmers tailgate market here in Oakland and always try to take our truck. By the way it was Judy's dads truck, 1949 F-5 ford. spent its whole life on the farm. total miles 21,600.

Lovely basket, rolling pins and bowls. I imagine that the truck draws much attention to your "booth". Best to you both!

Great looking work. What kind of finish do you use on your rolling pins? That truck is killer!

Thanks all, The truck works really well. When we started doing craft shows the grumpy old men just wanted to go home and the wives didn't have time to look. We got this brainstorm to fix up the old truck and use it for a store front at the shows. Works like a charm. You can see the husbands nearly dragging the wives over to our booth. Course a lot of the girls like the truck too. To finish the rolling pins I saturate them with mineral oil and let them set overnite. Next day I wipe dry and let set open for several days to finish absorbing as much as it will.
