Lefse Rolling Pin Contest



The author of The Last Word on Lefse is sponsoring the first Lefse Rolling Pin Contest for woodturners.

Contest winner receives $500.

Second place  - $250.

Third place - $150.


Winners will be interviewed by author Gary Legwold, and interviews, photos, and project plans go into a new lefse book (coming in 2017) celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Last Word on Lefse.



The winning lefse rolling pins will be turnings deemed to be both most functional as a lefse rolling pin as well as most artful, creative, and even humorous. These are to be “wow” turnings made from wood or woods of your choice and that may or may not have fixed handles and grooves, as traditional lefse pins do.


Bring your creative entries to the October 4 th meeting of the Minnesota Woodturners

Association. Meeting location: 2445 N. Prior Ave., Roseville, MN. Multiple entries

accepted. Turnings will be judged at the meeting, and winners will be announced at

the end of the meeting. Good luck!
