Description: Wooden rolling pin. Primitive hand fashioned made from one cylindrical piece of wood, tapered at each end to serve as a handle.

A rolling pin is a cylindrical food preparation utensil used to shape and flatten dough. Two styles of rolling pins are found; roller and rods. Roller types consist of a thick cylindrical roller with small handles at each end; rod type rolling pins are usually thin tapered batons. Rolling pins of different styles and materials offer advantages over another, as they are used for different tasks in cooking and baking. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_pin
