From Wood Scraps to Rolling Pins

Categories: Furniture + Lighting

Michael Robbins has found a novel way to reduce waste. The New York furniture maker has fashioned a selection of rolling pins made from the fine woods—walnut, maple and sycamore, amongst others—left over from the tables, chairs and lamps he crafts at his Hudson Valley studio. The rolling pins are neither uniform in size—lengths are contingent upon the size of the wood scrap—or shape. Says Robbins, “I have some shorter pins that might be nice for pastries; a longer, thinner one I imagine would be good for pasta; and some heavier, thicker pins that are good for pizza crust.”
