DIY Rolling Pin from a Dowel - Anya’s Eats

In this blog post we are going to show you how to make a rolling pin from a dowel. This is a great project for anyone who wants to save money and have a custom rolling pin. All you need is a dowel, some sandpaper, and paint or sealant. We will show you how to do it!

Wooden rolling pins are beautiful, but they can be expensive.

Rolling pins are a must-have for any kitchen. They're great for getting flour and sugar to coat your dough, and they help you roll out dough with ease. They also make excellent gifts, as long as you can afford the price tag on some rolling pins! These wooden tools come in many different sizes and shapes, so there's one that will fit everyone's needs. You can buy rolling pins made from various materials like marble or plastic, but we recommend sticking with wood if you want something sturdy that won't break easily. And don't forget about color! Rolling pins come in every color imaginable—and you might even find one that matches your favorite piece of cookware!

The best part about making your own DIY rolling pin substitute is that you can make it your own size, shape, and design. You can choose any type of wood that you like and even decide if you want to paint it or stain it. These are the supplies needed:

-You can make your own rolling pin with a dowel and a few other simple items.

-A wood dowel rod, which is fairly easy to find and costs around $5,

-A drill for making holes in the dowel so that you can attach it to the other materials.

A hammer for nailing things together once you've got all your materials ready. You might also want to use clamps or some sort of metal banding for this step if you're working with large pieces of wood that need extra support as they dry out (this will help prevent warping).

You can make rolling pins in any size you want.

Another thing to consider is the size of your rolling pin. If you’re making a lot of small cookies, it would be helpful to have a smaller rolling pin. You can make them any length or width you want!

The best part is that this project requires no special tools or skills. You can do it!

Some tools and supplies you might need to make your own rolling pin.

4 wooden dowels (3/8" x 12") —this is the main ingredient for your rolling pin! We used a 12-inch piece, but any length will work. You can also use pine or another softwood if you want to avoid having a hard thing on your countertop.

Wood glue—to hold the pieces together while they dry.

Wood stain—to color the wood so that it matches what's in your kitchen (or whatever color strikes your fancy).

Fine sandpaper (120 grit)—for smoothing out any rough edges on the ends of your dowel.

A cutting board or something to cut on.

How to make a wooden rolling pin substitute.

A sharp knife for cutting the dowel into your preferred shape and a sanding block for smoothing it out if you want it perfectly smooth. You can also use a drill to make holes at the ends, or just leave them as is (that’s what I did). You won’t need any special tools unless you plan on making one with fancy handles like I did, which requires measuring tools and possibly a drill press if you want to get fancy with things. It’s not necessary though! The materials needed are fairly cheap, so this is an inexpensive project even though there are many steps involved in creating it!
