Pre-Drilled Curly Maple Rolling Pin Blank
Rolling pins are fun to make, useful, and a great gift idea anytime! However, there are two challenges to making a rolling pin, besides deciding on the wood combinations: finding the hardware and drilling the 12"-long 1/2" through hole. We found the hardware (#158761) and decided to...
- Blank measures 3" x 3" x 12"
- 1/2" through hole and 7/8" diameter x 1/2" deep recess on each end for the bearings
- Rolling Pin Hardware Kit #158761 SOLD SEPARATELY
Curly maple is not actually a species, but simply a description of a figure in the grain. Curly maple occurs most often in soft maples, but is also seen in hard maples. The heartwood is typically a light tan to reddish-brown color and, of course, features a pronounced grain pattern. The sapwood is usually cream colored with a reddish tint. Curly maple is a durable, hard, and dense wood, which carves and turns exceedingly well, and finishes nicely. Curly maple is also referred to as tiger maple, flame or fiddleback maple.

Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
