It takes Rick about a WEEK to finish a big piece like this. EACH of our bowls are Completely Unique. ALL of our wooden dough bowls ship FREE to the US mainland. He did THIS one in a shabby distressed White finish AND added stands to either end.. You WILL see wood splits and imperfections. We simply paint and then wax them in so that they blend as well as possible with the surrounding patina. These bowls are not MADE to "look" perfect. The imperfections is what makes them so charming. You can see the wonderful rasp marks in the wood from the carving process. Rick leaves those in there to attest to the authenticity of the hand hewn process. Because it has been distressed and painted it would NOT be functional for actually rolling dough OR storing raw foods in (but perfect for foods with peels and shells OR other holiday decorations.) Perfect centerpiece accent for a big Harvest Table! Please note that this is the Rounded design. Rick took the bottom and flattened it out so that it could sit as flat as possible. But this bowl is a little twisted and so Rick decided to build scrolled iron stands to go on each end. Measures ALMOST THREE and a Half FEET LONG at 41 3/8" inches. 7 7/8" wide and approx. 5 7/8" tall WITH the stands. It weighs FIVE POUNDS! The bowl you SEE in the pictures is the EXACT bowl you will RECEIVE.
