    We'd be all over one that was 20-24 inches long; 36 inches is a little too unweildy on a kitchen counter (we don't use a table for pasta). And it wouldn't need to taper; just easing the corners on the end would work great. 2 inch diameter would work well. How thick is the slab?

    the one i just did wass 1.5 inch ish at the center with tapered ends about about 18-20 inch of flat center for use i told my friend that if she wanted i coudl ajust the tapers in farther if she felt it woudl be useful
    my lathe can swing 24x42 inch stock so 2 inch should be no problem ;) (i dont have wood in right now for pins was looking to see interest)

    I would be game as well for one in the 20-24 range.

    What about those salt boxes you were talking about a while ago?

    it all comes down to finding the right wood and the time to turn them never really came up with a good shape/size to make the boxes
