My wife had a commerically made rolling pin that was unattractive and didn’t roll that well because of it’s cheap construction whereby the handles where connected with a steel rod and cheap bushings.
So I made the two pins shown here. She’s used the top one for a year or two now. Every now and then I re-coat it with tung oil and it still looks pretty good. It has a variety of woods (yew in the middle, walnut, maple, walnut, red oak, walnut). The handles are Hick’s Yew.
The other pin is walnut and hard maple with spalted Big Leaf Maple handles.
