I picked up this rolling pin at the Dollar Store the other day. What a great deal! It’s pine, but it’s got a surprising amount of heft to it, and the handles are perfectly sized. The wood is very smoothly sanded, as well. After I took it home and unwrapped it, I immediately hustled back to the store to buy several more (all of them, perhaps), but they were (alas) sold out. Can’t say I’m surprised.
In this photo you can see the holes I drilled into it for the poorly-conceived parrot playstand project (more on that debacle tomorrow), but you still get the basic idea…too bad I ruined it.
This baby has more entertainment potential than an iPad. Just think of all the awesome things you could use it for!
