    Collection of custom wooden rolling pins

    This post is a followup to the popular post on 3D cutting board craze examples. Here we'll explore the emerging aesthetic themes among some of the nicest rolling pins from the excellent woodworkers at

    Basically there are three main types of rolling pins: the most common style with handles that extend from either end, one without handles often referred to in America as a "French" rolling pin, and a specialty textured or raised-design rolling pin for making specific pastries or embossing designs into dough.

    Broadly, the developing aesthetic themes are: checkerboard, Celtic knot, and inlay. Also, the popularity of the French style pins (without handles) may be attributed to the fact that they are easier to make than the handled designs (unlike, say, Frenched headlights on a hot rod). Of course, there is also no lack of purpleheart.

    Here's a selection of some of the nicer rolling pins from Lumberjocks, each one credited to its builder.
