Large Stained & Laced Wooden Dough Bowl 32" (S-L)
Rawhide laced western wooden dough bowls and southwestern bowls are authentic Native bowls made by the Tarahumara Indians. Wooden dough bowls or trenchers are carved by hand from native yellow pine and begin as a piece of a downed tree trunk. The Indian log bowls are made by splitting the trunk in half lengthwise then rough cut with an axe.
The carved wooden dough bowls are shaped and further worked with a machete or large knife. This traditional western Indian bowl has a round bottom, was rough sanded to a rustic finish, stained and laced with genuine rawhide. They sometimes don't sit straight and are not suitable for food preparation. Dough bowls are used by the Tarahumara Indian people but are sold for decoration. Bowls or dough trays are used to catch corn meal as it is ground with a stone.
The rustic character of primitive stained dough bowls and rawhide lacing add a sense of rustic beauty to create a natural atmosphere for southwest log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any ranch or country decor. This large laced wooden dough bowl measures 11.75" wide by 30" long, and works well as wall or table decorations, flower planters, fruit bowls or for various western art and southwest or Indian craft projects.
