Rolling pins made of transparent glass that were filled with ice or cold water kept the butter in the dough cold. Keeping the butter cold results in lighter, flakier crusts.

Setup
It's a very simple setup that uses just one small continuous-light lamp on the right side near the height of the tabletop. Seven focus-bracketed images at Nikon step size 3 were stacked in Helicon Focus at its default settings.

Never seen one of those, I like your photo. I can only recall using a rolling pin a few times for cracking roasted barley for making stout.

Never heard of such a thing. Seems like in a hot/humid kitchen the thing would sweat. Which wouldn't exactly lend itself to working with pastry. Hmmm.
