Use a rolling pin to crush nuts.

"Put graham crackers for a pie crust, or nuts for a salad in a plastic bag and run a rolling pin over it a few times. It really does the trick!"—Celebrations.com contributors, Adriane and Claudia Kiss aka The Kissters

Do you do this already?

We recently noticed that my rolling pin is missing.  How long missing?  I've been using a lead pipe (about 18" long and an 1" wide wrapped in a baker's flour cloth.  For how long?   ... 3 yrs seems like longer.  It's probably on loan.  Who borrowed it?  The butcher, the baker, or the candlestick maker???  LOL!

I use mine to crush things all the time, in fact more than I do than rolling things out.

Not really. I use my tenderizer for that. Works a lot better.
