To make a Vintage Rolling Pin Cork Board You Will Need:
4 Wooden Vintage Rolling Pins
½ inch drill bit
Sheet of pine Plywood
Sheet or roll of cork board
Scissors or exacto knife
Now, the first set is to measure how long your Vintage Rolling Pins are. You and do this simple project with mini Vintage Rolling Pins as well.
Now, have you sheet of plywood cut into a square that is about three inches longer and wider than your Vintage Rolling Pins are long. So, if your wood Vintage Rolling Pin is 30 inches long, then you will want your plywood square to be 33 inches by 33 inches.
Now, cut out your sheet for cork board to 33 inches by 33 inches, or whatever sizes your plywood square is.
If you have any leftover cork board, then you can cut strips to glue onto the edge of your plywood board. Just measure the length and width, cut the cork board and glue with the following directions.
Now, lay you sheet of cork board out on a flat surface. Lightly spray it with a good quality spray adhesive, the kind that come in an aerosol can. You could also use wood glue if you want.
Now, place your cork board on the plywood sheet. Line the edge up and press it into place.
Now, take your four Vintage Rolling Pin and drill a hole in each end of the Vintage Rolling Pins. I like to tape my rolling pins down on a flat work surface and then drill a hole in about 2 inches form each end. Make sure the holes are in the same place on each Vintage Rolling Pin.
Now, lay your Vintage Rolling Pins out on the cork board and glue a thin marker slipped through the predrilled hole in the rolling pin to make a mark on the cork board. This will tell you where to pre drill your hole on the cork board. I like to overlap the Vintage Rolling Pins, so there are only four holes in the cork board, but you could lay the rolling pins out in a square and attach them all with 8 screws, 2 per rolling pin.
Using bolts that fits thought the hole. Slip it through each Vintage Rolling Pin and out the back of the cork board. You can use a nut and washer on the back to hold the Vintage Rolling Pin frame in place.
Now, you made you plywood cork board bigger than the rolling pin, so these pins will really set about three inches inside of the cork board.
Now, flip the cork board over and install some picture hanging hook device on the back.
You can hang this simple Vintage Rolling Pin cork board on your wall!
