This French pastry rolling pin is made from hickory (centre) walnut and maple and a couple big buttons .
It measures 16” L and 1 7/8” in dia .glued wit Tite Bond III and finished with mineral oil and bees wax and polished with a piece of wood on the lathe .
A present for my daughter and I am hoping to get some nice pastry made with it .
Sorry about the pictures but the wood colour reflects of the counter and it looks like a stain .

Hey Klaus, Should be able to make some nice fruit pie crusts? Too pretty to use! LOL! Now you can make a box to put it in?

Great looking rolling pin Klaus! It reminds me of a loaf of french bread perfect design for the kitchen. This surely deserve some nice pastry for your efforts!

Looks very useable Klaus and pretty too. I have one a lot like it (although plain) that I use for pizza dough….
a little cross cultural maybe….
Tom, that’s “Tarte au Fruit” and one of the great attractions in the pâtisserie. ... and yes, Klaus’ daughter should be turning out some nice ones very soon. Maybe we should angle for an invite???

Yes, very pretty.

An idea for the photography; just lay things on a stretched tightly white towel for the photos. Or some similar thing—to give an uncluttered background.

Good looking pin Klaus with the Kiefer touch. While a well deserving gift for some pastries, too many will make you lazy in the shop. LOL Hope you enjoy the pastries as much as your daughter will enjoy the rolling pin.

Well it sounds like there are a lot of pastry lovers out there .
Thanks all for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed the post .
I am really starting to enjoy lathe work and using scraps and laminating them makes it even more satisfying as I enjoy the results .
I forgot to mention how I attached the button I just drill a hole in the end large enough for the loop on the back of the button and squeeze in some PL PREMIUM and insert the button and let it set up over night .
Now I wait for the pastry to show up .
