I love the rolling pin but am not that enamored with the lag bolts. Maybe if you recessed them? But then dirt and cookie goo would get in there and make it a mess.
I am a big fan of one piece rolling pins, no handles, I think they are a french design. Clean and no place for “goo” to hide :)

Nice!

What about recessing the bolts and plugging the ends of the handles?

Beautiful rolling pin!
Or get rid of the lag bolts and turn some wooden axles for the handles, you could drill a home in the main roller and glue the axles in.

I really like the holder for the rolling pin. Mind if I use the idea for my Celtic Knot rolling pins?

A very nice rolling pin . I agree with the suggestions of Charlie and John. The holder for the rolling pin is exquisite.

Ditto Charlies’ comment …that was my first thought . Did you use stainless lags ? I don’t see any washers between the Hex and the wooden handle . The pin is sweet and the shape of the handles is nice as well .The holder is a great design : )

Great design. but I’d look for something that would make the overall look of the rolling pin more user friendly. A recessed hole and a plug would do wonders.
