Rolling pin handles

Post #24581 by 1940woodworker » Sun Nov 16, 2008 1:18 pm

Can anyone tell me of a supplier for the hardware for rolling pin handles? I have looked on the web, but can not find any place that carries just the hardware. Any help would be great.

Hi Dennis,
I did a Google search for "rolling pin hardware" and got many results, but nothing actually for any hardware to assemble rolling pins. Then I tried a Google search for "rolling pin parts" and, again got many results, including this one: http://www.svwoodturners.org/Handouts/rollingpin.pdf , and this one: http://www.turnedtreasures.com/galleries/new_turnings/pin_parts3.html , and this was interesting too: http://www.enotes.com/how-products-encyclopedia/rolling-pin . I do knot know if this helps any, but it might give you some ideas. :)

Tim:

Those were interesting sites. Ironically, just the other day I was wondering about rolling pins so this question and your reply were very timely.

I don't think I will be attempting this any time soon!

Wish I could find a source for marble rolling pin rollers... I use quite a number of them in my sandcarving and I'm sure I could make the rest of the parts and assemble cheaper than purchasing & shipping... They make a nice kitchen decoration with the family name carved in them. Here'swhat they look like.

A couple of years back I turned several rolling pins complete with handles attached (fixed) in place. These were christmas gifts that were well recieved and are in constant use.
I got a rough overall cylinder shape and used the 12 inch sanding disk with 100 grit paper and held over the top of the cylinder and it did a great job of smoothing off the rolling pin. I followd through up to 320 grit.
The handles were an exercise in using a skew chisel and if both handles were not quite exact, that did not matter too much as it gave the rolling pin that hand made look and feel.
The wood was basic hard wood - oak I think.
Finished with organ oil hi-speed finishing oil
Give it a go and surprise yourself - great fun and a learning experience.
