Simply start with a quality 3" x 3" x 12" hardwood blank such as Maple or Walnut square the ends and mark center on both ends. Bore a 7/8" diameter hole, 11/32" deep on both ends using marks. Next, use a 1/2" x 10" brad point bit to drill half way from each end and meeting in the middle. Make sure that the drill remains straight and parallel while drilling to ensure a straight bore. Mount between centers and turn round, sand and apply a food safe finish. To turn the handles select any turning stock that measures 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 6". Using a brad point bit bore a 3/8" diameter hole 3-1/4" deep. Mount the blank between centers and turn to desired profile, sand and finish. To assemble make a mark 3" from the end of the stainless steel rod, this mark will indicate where the outside edge of the bearing will need to stop. Slide on washer on followed by pressing one of the bearings on. Slide the axel rod through the hole in the pin followed by a nylon washer and the last bearing. Ensuring that the bearings are flush with the ends of the rolling pin slide one washer one each end. Using a five minute epoxy secure your handles onto the axel, let cure and you are ready to start rolling. Once completed, this will be one of the smoothest rolling pins you have ever used.
- Stainless Steel Rod
- Sealed ball bearings
- Ultra smooth and quiet operation
the two people I made these for don't like the ball bearings. they clog with flour. Not a good design. Nice to look at. Back to the one piece.
Hardware is solid, instructions poor
This is a great kit but I found the instruction very poor. Other kits have great detailed instructions that suggest sequence and dimensions. I didn't use one of the rolling pin blanks that Woodcraft sells. The bearings are very solid but are a tight fit on the shaft. I created a press out of a piece of wood with a 3/8" hole to make sure it went on straight.
