The Ruled Rolling Pin, 2021

in Walnut & Ash

 

This Ruled Rolling Pin is inspired by the visual rhythm & utility of peg rails found in many Shaker homes. The walnut pin is marked with ash pegs at 1" intervals along its length to assist in rolling out dough to a desired diameter. The stepped ends function as dough depth-checkers -- one end with 1/4" increments and the other 1/8". Like the peg rail, these details may appear decorative, but the embellishments in form serve mainly to enhance the tool's utility. The Ruled Rolling Pin is a simple tool that not only helps roll out dough but measures it along the way. 

 

In an added nod to Shaker peg rails, the pin is paired with a rubber-dipped clasp for wall-mounting -- a reimagined detail that helps usher Shaker principles for organization & utility into the tiny apartment of it's Brooklyn maker.
