These French style rolling pins are made by Brandon Norsted right down the street from us in Madison, WI. The rolling pins are made with domestic hardwoods and you can choose either walnut, maple, and oak. In the first photo, the walnut is on the left, the maple is the middle one, and oak is on the right. These hardwood pins will last a lifetime. The shape of these is popular in France and the taper is favored by professional pastry chefs as it allows for more control. This rolling pin measures 19.5 inches long and 1.6 Inches wide with a weight of 12.5 ounces. Nice work Brandon.
