Carved bread dough bowl

Some images of a new carved bowl that I finished earlier this year. Carved and finished by hand from local birch it measures 19″x11″x5″ and is designed as a dough bowl (or trough) for mixing, kneading and proving bread dough in. For scale, the final picture shows the some of my cherry cooking spoons which are just shy of 12″ long sat in the bowl.

I’ve been talking about dough bowls with Simon Thomas, owner of the Staff of Life bakery in Kendal and we’ll be working together to come up with the perfect design for modern home baking.

  1. Keep me posted Steve re your perfect dough bowl. My plans to create a mobile wood-fired bread oven have recently taken a great leap forward. Your dough bowl could be a perfect adjunct to this. I intend to encourage have-a-go bread-baking on the streets of Kirkcudbright in 2014.

    Where can I purchase the bread trough?
