Rolling Pin

Rolling Pins are important kitchen tools. They are used to flatten dough for making pies. Most every kitchen has one. By turning your own, you can choose the woods and make a plain single wood or a fancy multiple wood rolling pin.

These rolling pins make wonderful gifts and also are great for new families.

By: Larry Hancock
In this wonderful photo tutorial, Larry shows us how he makes a rolling pin with different wood for the handles. He turns the handles separate and glues them into the rolling pin body to enable the handles to spin. This creates a fantastic rolling pin where you can roll back and forth while holding the handles tightly. This is a great project and made simple by Larry's detailed descriptions and close-up photos.
