When teaching at the HS, I bought large wooden rolling pins. These I would have the students roll out the first slabs for their slab projects, and then I would allow them to move to the slab roller after I demonstrated and explained safety measures. I do/did not believe that every studio would have slab rollers so learning to use cutting slabs with height sticks, or rolling slabs with height sticks was important. Always when rolling with a solid wooden rolling pin do not grip, as too prone to blistering. Use the palm of the hand open over the handle to push along without gripping.

I use several wooden laser cut bakers rolling pins (going on 4 years) have no problems maintaining the wood. I use dental pics and medium hard bristle brushes to get dried clay out of crevasses, lightly wash the roller, dry it thoroughly, and every few months wipe on--and then wipe off--a very, very light bit of something like Bag Balm or coconut oil.
