Length: 20 inches
Tapers: Sharp, 3 inches from both ends
Finish: Vegetable oil. Cheap, food safe, and found in almost every kitchen. The oil brings out the color of the wood and seals the surface protecting it from cracking and splitting.
A nice piece of tiger maple turned into a large rolling pin. The iridescent, cross-grain stripes are reminiscent of a tiger, thus the name. Tipping the rolling pin produces a "3D" effect across the surface. Finding beautiful maple like this is somewhat difficult because it is rare.
This rolling pin was sanded extremely smooth, is very hard and durable, and is the ideal size for making pies and pizzas. Makes for a great conversation starter in any kitchen!
The maple was found locally in New York state.
TO CARE FOR THIS ITEM:
Lightly scrub with a damp soapy sponge to clean the surface of this rolling pin. Not much effort is required to remove flower and dough. Dry immediately afterward with a towel.
Do NOT soak the rolling pin in a sink or put in a dishwasher. The water will cause the wood to expand, warp and possibly split.
Reapply coats of food-safe oil every month or so with a sponge or paper towel. I recommend using vegetable oil because most people already have some in their kitchen and it works very well to seal and protect the surface.
