Each starts as a block of artisan wood, carefully chosen for its grain and color by Maker and lifelong Vermonter Ken Freeman. (We smiled upon learning that the types of wood Ken uses sound like perfect pie ingredients: maple, cherry, and walnut.)
With patience and intuition, Ken hand-turns each rolling pin in his mountainside workshop as his watchful eye brings out the wood’s character. He sands until the pin reaches a satiny finish, then seals it with a protective beeswax mineral oil that enhances the natural beauty.
Vermont Rolling Pins make great gifts, but their handling and appearance are so superior you may just want your own. These heirloom quality instruments are made to be used—and admired—for generations.
