Gather the necessary materials

Before you can start making a rolling pin holder, you’ll need to gather the necessary materials. Here’s a list of what you’ll need:

  • A small piece of wood (approximately 1 inch thick and wide enough to fit your rolling pin)
  • Sandpaper (medium and fine grit)
  • A saw
  • Wood glue
  • Clamps
  • A drill
  • Screws
  • A screwdriver
  • A measuring tape
  • A pencil
  • A paintbrush
  • A wood finish of your choice (optional)

Measure and cut the wood

Start by measuring the width of your rolling pin. This will determine the width of the holder. Mark the width on your piece of wood using a pencil. Next, measure and mark the length of the holder. This will depend on how many rolling pins you want to store and the amount of space you have.

Once you have your measurements marked, use a saw to carefully cut the piece of wood along the lines. Make sure to follow the lines as accurately as possible to ensure a clean cut.

Sand and finish the wood

Once the wood is cut, use sandpaper to smooth out any rough edges. Start with a medium grit sandpaper to remove any splinters or imperfections, and then finish with a fine grit sandpaper to achieve a smoother surface.

If you prefer a polished look, you can apply a wood finish of your choice. Use a paintbrush to evenly apply the finish to the entire surface of the wood. Allow it to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Assemble the rolling pin holder

Now it’s time to assemble the rolling pin holder. Apply a thin layer of wood glue to one end of the piece of wood. Then, place the rolling pin holder vertically on a flat surface and position your rolling pin on top of the glued end.

Apply another thin layer of wood glue to the other end of the rolling pin holder and carefully press it against the other end of the rolling pin. Make sure the rolling pin fits snugly in the holder.

Secure the rolling pin holder

To ensure that the rolling pin holder is securely attached, use clamps to hold the glued ends together. Tighten the clamps enough to create pressure but not too tight that it causes the wood to warp. Leave the clamps in place for at least 24 hours to allow the wood glue to fully dry and bond.

After the glue has dried, the rolling pin holder is ready to be used! You can hang it on a wall or place it on your kitchen counter for easy access to your rolling pin.
