If you are making  cut-out sugar cookies or pie crusts and need a rolling pin and you don't happen to have one and dont have the time and/or money to go buy one, my friend recently showed me this new trick to use a wine bottle.  You would of course clean the wine bottle first.  She used an empty one, but I guess one could also use a full unopened one.

Yep.  Done that many a time.  Depending on what is being rolled and how much dough, I've used smaller bottles like soy sauce or beer.  And I have used full bottles when no empties are around.

I usually use straight drinking glasses, because the wine bottles have still the label on it. It is far easier to wash up.
