Our Black Walnut French rolling pins are a complimentary item to our line of quality artisan kitchen products. This handcrafted rolling pin is made from Pennsylvania sourced Black Walnut (a tribute to the place I grew up). Pennsylvania Walnut is the highest quality Walnut you'll find in the U.S. and has a stunning variation of blues, reds, purples, and browns. I turn these rolling pins by hand on a lathe in our workshop and make sure they are precise so they provide a smooth, consistent, and even roll.
They are precisely sanded to 220 grit on the lathe and then wet sanded at 1000 grit for an ultra smooth surface. From there, they are seasoned with Food Grade mineral oil and finished off with a beeswax/mineral oil protective coat. You are left with a stunning rolling pin that rolls smoothly and has a silky smooth surface.
ABOUT THE LUMBER:
We hand select the highest quality lumber for each rolling pin. This black walnut has stunning figure and provides a beautiful sheen when it's sanded. Our walnut has a mixture of browns, reds, blues and purples.
