I needed a larger rolling pin so made a project of it. Gave one away, use the other.
They are 12 inches long (not including the handles) and 3.5 inches dia. Stainless steel shaft and sealed bearings, I can roll as fast as I want and they won’t overheat!
Made from maple, walnut, and bubinga.

those look great – would love to see more photos to see the entire pattern. Where did you get the hardware?

Thanks for posting

Tom,
I don’t have detailed plans or photos, I kind of made it up as I went along.
Go to a real hardware store (not home depot) buy stainless steel rod most any diameter over 1/4 inch should work, ask them for sealed bearings to fit. Drill the handles to fit the rod, I just made a ‘force fit’ and hammered the rod into the handles. used a forstner bit to countersink the bearings into the roller. the long hole I made oversize because I had trouble drilling a long hole straight through the roller.
Let us know how it turns out, you won’t have any major problems.

Paul, very cool design. May have to try making one of these myself though I don’t do any baking to speak of. Even with sealed bearings I ‘assume’ that you have hand wash only these pins?

Ron,
I handwash only all my wood items as the Tightbond II would not hold up to the dishwasher heat. Water does not seem to harm it.

Vary nice Paul! The one in the back looks like the one my Mom use to wave in the air when She got mad at me.

Fortunately She never hit me with it! ..LOL…
