Here are two rolling pin designs and the plans of how to make them. The first one, just glue slaps of variety of timber beside each other and as many as you like, same length and width but dont worry about the thickness. Then cut the big blank at, say, 10 degrees to produce long and square cut blanks which you turn them into rolling pins after squaring their ends. Also, you can glue the first cut and the last to have one more pin.
THE second design needs two steps before you turn it.

Dennis, any cooking oil will do the job, to keep it non-sticky.
