Rolling pins made from scrap wood I had. Mostly maple, and walnut. The yellow is not dyed or tinted, that is true Yellow Heart.
All were finished with Watco brand “Butcher Block Finish”, it is a hard glossy food safe finish that has pretty much no maintence (no need to regularly put new mineral oil on to keep it good).

Those are great. I don’t think I could keep it flat enough to make a good rolling pin. Very cool

Yes, that is the finish Shawn. It works wonderfully. Be very careful to seal the container very well as it will start to skin over and become troublesome to keep well otherwise.
I apply it with a light cotton rag – like a rag made from an old t-shirt.
I put on light coats and rub it down with 0000 steel-wool between coats. It starts looking very good at about the 4th coat.

Very nice! I’ve never tried using one for pastry, but have always admired them.
How heavy are they?

I just weighed one and it was exactly 1lb. Some are larger and weigh a bit more, or some are made from a heavier wood. . .
