The key to making nice looking rolls if you're not a professional sushi chef, as I am clearly not, is to take your hot sushi rice, add the sushi vinegar, then flatten it out on a sheet pan to cool. You can then pick up pre-flattened rice with a big spatula and drop it right on the nori to make a pretty reasonable looking roll. This amount of rice makes three small rolls.

And practice makes perfect. Looking at the rolls I made one year earlier, yes, I've gotten better!
