This rolling pin is an inch thick and 12 inches long (32cm). It's ideal for pastries and tortillas although I have used one this size to roll a pie before.
One end had a small hole that needed to be filled. It looks a bit odd but is fine otherwise.
The buck thorn was found in New York state while I was living there. I don't have much left and I doubt I will find any more for a very long time.
TO CARE FOR THIS ITEM:
Lightly scrub with a damp soapy sponge to clean the surface of this rolling pin. Dry immediately afterward with a towel.
Do NOT soak 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.
