These products are designed to bring beauty to your kitchen, plus they are delightful to use.   Each of these items are turned one at a time by hand.   I’ve chosen to use Ash for the biscuit cutters or cookie cutters because of the appearance of the open grain of the wood.   The rolling pins are offered chiefly in Hard Maple, but also in Walnut, for some one who needs just that color in their kitchen.

Biscuit or cookie cutters, turner from Ash.

Biscuit Cutters

These cutters are 4 through 4 1/2 inches tall and have different size openings.   The opening size is an approximation, I aim for the exact size but things "happen".   Pin hole from small knots, bark on the outside, checks around the pith and cross grain from the intersection of larger branches are not regarded as defects but as enhancements, reflecting the life of a real tree.   Interested in a custom size?   Please ask me about it.

The opening is in half inch sizes: 2, 2 1/2, 3 & 3 1/2 inches. (5, 6.4, 7.6 & 9 cm)

Rolling Pins

All of these are about 1 7/8 inches in diameter.   (Remember these are each one turned by hand so slight variations and ... mistakes ... slip into the process.)   The differences are in the length:   long is about 19 inches long, short is about 15 inches long, while the very short rolling pin is 6 to 7 inches in length.

Long comes in two version:   straight and tapered.   The tapers on each end form a handle, leaving about 10 inches of rolling pin in the middle.
