Fonde: The Ravioli Rolling Pin, Perfected. Getting Closer!

Posted by Michael Finizio (Creator)

Hello Everyone-   Lots of info here, please read through!

An important note to everyone who requested Cherry accent strips on their pins: Cherry wood can vary quite a bit in color. As we've been buying cherry slabs from the lumber yard we're seeing lots of color variation. Also, cherry gets much redder as it ages. Please don't be alarmed if the cherry in your pin is not as red as you were expecting, it's still going to be top quality and look beautiful for years to come! 

So, have you ever wondered what 800 cardboard boxes and 1000 feet of bubble wrap look like? 

 Pretty soon we'll be starting to ship! We've got about 2/3 of the 700 or so rolling pins made and waiting for packaging. I'll send out another update once we actually start putting these guys into boxes and sending them out to you all. 

If you live in the Tri-State area and want to come meet me, I'll be a featured presenter at New York City's Out To See festival in Manhattan on November 1st & 2nd, and again on the 22nd & 23rd.

I'll be doing several ravioli-making demos throughout the four days so come on down and bring your apron and your appetite!

Thanks again everyone, 

- Michael Finizio
