This hand made French Rolling Pin is made with Western Maple from Oregon. I turned this on my lathe with hand tools and then sanding to 1500 grit before I started applying 7 coats of hand rubbed walnut oil and carnuba wax. This seals the wood and adds a soft sheen and makes it very easy to clean. When you are finished simply wipe it down with a damp clean kitchen cloth. Then it is ready to be put out on display as a center piece of your kitchen decor. Also remember that a rolling pin like this becomes an heirloom with many stories of life in your kitchen to be passed down for generations. These are pictures of the pin you will be receiving. It is 17 1/2" long and 2 1/2" in diameter and is designed to roll out the dough not push it over your counter.
