Handmade French Tapered Rolling Pin

The curved profile of this Artisan crafted, Handmade French Tapered Rolling Pin makes it easier to roll out a pie crust, pastry or even cookies. This style of rolling pin was featured on Julia Child's cooking shows for 50 years. The shape pushes the dough outward for a uniform thickness. Chef's love these. 

This solid one piece design is Artisan crafted from Cherry (Medium) or Black Walnut (Dark).

These beautiful tapered rolling pins make memorable gifts. The small size even makes a great starter rolling pin for an aspiring child chef.

Due to the handmade nature of these items, each one will be unique and not exactly as pictured.

Materials: Walnut, Cherry, Walnut Oil, Olive Oil

Size: Small is approximately 12" and Large is approximately 17"

Made in: Tilly, AR

Lead time: 3 - 5 days. Leon Hoffman hand carves his work from wood that is sustainably harvested from local land. This process can take a little extra time, but it's worth the wait for these craftsman pieces.
