Here is a Trencher/Dough Bowl I made for my friend Tuti who just had her 40th birthday. She has been admiring the ones sold at Pottery Barn but thought they were too expensive. So, I made her one.

It is made out of scrap 2×4’s. I band sawed out a lot of the waste before gluing up to minimize some of the waste to be removed with a gouge and mallet.

The finish is Transtint Dye (Dark Mission Brown) followed by two coats of whipe on poly. This is my favorite method for coloring wood.

Thanks for looking!

Great looking bowl with some character .
I love it and now thinking of maybe making one from some 3” x 9” red willow I was given .
Thanks for the inspiration.

Mauricio, I had to Google dough bowl to see how it was used in the past. However, it looks as though this one won’t be used for its intended purpose…LOL. Nice work!!

Thanks Everyone.

Terry, I used what I had, I’ll tell you though, the knots make it a pain in the aas to carve.

Go for it Kiefer. Do you have a section of log? You should check out Peter Follansbee’s blogs, he has had some great posts on carving bowls lately.

Lee, yeah, this one is just decorative.

What’s amazing about the whole antique/vintage home decor trend is that Pottery Barn is now selling antiques! The dough bowls they sell are antiques from Easter Europe.

My friend loved it and was very happy. Thanks again for everyone’s comments.
