Here is a wooden rolling pin 16 inches long and 1 1/4 inches in diameter. I had some long pieces of Cherry about 1 1/2 inches wide and thick that were just beautiful. They were straight grained with beautiful Cherry wood color. They were some scraps left over from some rough 6/4 planks that I had ripped down on the table saw. I saw them in the scrap bin and decided they wanted to be rolling pins. Made with a spoke shave and hand plane, not turned on a lathe. Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.

This utensil is "pre-washed" so to speak. During the final sanding the grain is raised twice with hot water and then the loose fiber ends are sanded off with a finer grit of sandpaper so that in use the spoon will not get rough. Then it is soaked in a bath of melted beeswax and mineral oil at 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Care is easy, just wash in hot soapy water and towel dry. Apply some mineral oil or Walnut oil every couple of weeks. Better yet is a mixture of 3 parts mineral oil to one beeswax. Melt them together in a double boiler and pour into a small jar. We usually sell 4 ounce jars but we are out right now. We should have some more soon.
