A unique rolling pin design

Last year, a friend sent me a video of a living history exhibit in Salem Mass where a baker was showing off a rolling pin with a top handle and explained how the design of the rolling pin made more room at the table for multiple people to work because your arms were in front of you as opposed to out at your sides when rolling.
The only turning I've ever done is pens and bottle stoppers, but I figured I give spindle turning a shot to help my friend out.
Based on the video, I gave it my best attempt to recreate the rolling pin.
The tenons on the rolling pin sit in an oversized hole on the handles to allow movement. I didn't have a big enough piece of 8/4 cherry, so I turned the rolling pin then turned the tenons separately and drilled and glued them in the pin.

I'm happy with how it turned out, although I'm not a baker so I'll have to let my friend decide if it's actually useful
