This was made from some scraps I had laying around the shop. I glued it up yesterday and then turned it this morning. It’s not perfect, but the wife really likes it! I finished it with some mineral oil. It’s a lot bigger in diameter than her old rolling pin, which she really likes because it’s a lot heavier. I didn’t measure anything while making it, I just did what looked as aesthetically pleasing as possible to my eye, and it turned out to be about a quarter inch longer than a standard rolling pin. The handles are also much fatter than normal, which she also likes! So it’s a win-win for me!

You did a good job, esp by eye. I have made a few of these. A fun project and well appreciated.

Looks great! Are the handles one piece with the roller?

The handles are scraps from the same board that the cherry in the roller is from, but they aren’t one piece. They were kind of an afterthought, as weird as that sounds, but I turned them out of one piece and attached them using 1/4 inch dowels.

Great job on that wonderful and functional rolling pin. Like the beautiful wood and the shape.

Have your say...
