Having our own sawmill on site gives us numerous opportunities that many wood shops just do not have access to. But sometimes the mill leaves us with an usual cut of wood that we just don't know what to do with. Well after collecting these pieces we finally found a use for them! These jumbo rolling pins not only help us use every piece of wood that crosses our doors and fills a niche. These gigantic rolling pins have a fixed handle similar to a traditional rolling pin, but are just scaled up!

 

These slabs are then run through a thickness planer to get the desired thickness and then we rip them into rolling pin blanks which are generally 4" by 4" by 26" long. This is where the fun begins! We mark the ends of the rolling pins so we know where the center is and then mount it on the lathe. We start on the lathe by knocking the corners down until it is round with a series of gouges. From there we use a very sharp skew chisel to remove fine cuts and shape the tapers. We then slice the ends off and sand them down so that there are no marks on the ends of the rolling pins. We then coat them with a foodsafe wax and oil mix, taking care to not add to much so the finish remains thin, but protective so it doesn't feel like a heavy finish is on it. We then buff the pin and get it ready to ship to your home for many years of use! Please note these are example photos only, you will receive a similar pin, please contact us if you would like to see a preview of your pin before shipping.
