Hand carved ROUND wooden dough bowl centerpiece Rich has repeatedly finished and distressed this with our special bees wax to achieve a wonderful AGED look. And BECAUSE of the distressing/waxing process he puts them through these are NOT suitable for rolling dough or storing raw foods. Measures 16 7/8" x 16" wide. It stands 3" tall. Nice WEIGHT to this one too at FOUR and a Half POUNDS. This piece has been HAND HEWN...carved out of ONE SOLID Piece of wood. You can see the wonderful rasp marks in the wood from the carving process. Rick leaves those in there to add to the primitive appearance and as a reminder that it's a handmade piece. Leather strapping to one end to perfectly replicate the way they used to use these strappings to prevent splits to the lip from proceeding INTO the bowl. The piece you SEE is the EXACT one you will RECEIVE. ALL of our wooden dough bowls ship FREE to the US mainland.
