Dough/Trench Bowls

This page represents an expansion in my product line.  I have been asked about dough or trench bowls in the past and I decided to tool up and make some.  There is no turning involved with these.  It is strictly hollowing out and shaping and sanding.  I will be making them from a variety of woods as well as shapes and sizes.  For a bit of trivia these are also known as trenchers.  Hope you like them.

Cottonwood Centerpiece Trencher


This trencher made from beautiful cottonwood will look really good as the centerpiece on your dining table.   OK, you might even have it on your sideboard.  Use it for fruits and nuts and other tasty goodies!  After all you may use it with confidence as the wood was sealed and finished with food grade walnut oil.  This finish is totally renewable with olive oil.  The length is 18 ¼” with a width of 7 ½”.  The height came to 1 ½” and the depth at an average of 1 ½”.  The volume if you need it measures at 4 ½ cups.  So go ahead, get this and put it on your table and folks are gonna ask about it!  6Dec17  DTCW1  $37.50 and $14.00 S&H


Small Pecan Burl Trench Bowl


If you like wood pieces that have a great rustic appeal to them then this smallish sized trench bowl will have you smacking your lips!  Made from beautiful pecan wood and coming from a burl just add to the beautiful appearance of this piece.  There is a bit of unevenness on the inside of the bowl for a handmade and rustic appeal.  The outside edges are natural which aids in appearance as well.  This bowl will hold about 1 ½ cups of liquid and that just ain’t bad for this piece.  The bowl is 9 ½” long and 6” wide.  The height is 1 ¾” and the average depth is 1”.  The wood was sealed and finished with food grade walnut oil.  Using this gives the bowl a nice natural renewable finish.  29Jan17  DTP1  $30.00 and $11.00 S&H
