I have made a fair amount of these small rolling pins. The bottom is flat, and I have taken a small saw blade and cut a groove in the pin, just to where it doesn’t hit the handles. This is a great way to show recipe card, or hold a business card. I used a brown laminate, and painted the handles red, finished in conversion varnish.

The Handles are the same wood at the rolling pin, just painted red or green, like the old timers stuff looks like. While I have access to lots of the laminated colored woods, the all brown laminate looks the best. I spray finish the rolling pin, and not friction finish. On these types of projects I like to spray a finish on, and with the red handles, the friction finish would only smear the finish. Conversion Varnish is very hard and very smooth when done right. The hard part it cutting the groove in the rolling pin, this can be dangerous, and you need a very narrow saw blade. I saved up and bought an old Dremel 580 table saw with a 4.5 inch blade on it, and use a home made sled to carry the rolling pin across the blade. A great way to get hurt or ruin your project so think this part through before doing it. It was scary stuff before I made the sled up…...
