Southwestern wooden dough bowls are authentic native bowls made by the Tarahumara Indians. Wooden Indian dough bowls or trenchers are carved by hand from native yellow pine and begin as a piece of a downed tree trunk. These 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.

These traditional southwest Tarahumara Indian bowls have a round bottom and are rough sanded to a rustic finish. They sometimes don't sit straight and may not be suitable for food preparation. Dough bowls are used by the Tarahumara people but are sold by Mission Del Rey for decoration purposes. In the rural villages, bowls or dough trays are used to catch corn meal as it is ground with a stone.

The rustic character of primitive unfinished bowls adds a sense of rustic beauty to create a natural atmosphere for log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any ranch or country decor. They work well as wall or table decorations, flower planters, fruit bowls or for various western art and southwest or Indian craft projects.

These carved wooden dough bowls measure approx. 8.5" to 10.5" wide by 27" to 28" long, are rough sanded and good for paint or stain. Picture is representative.
