For 5 years, I have search for just the right Dough Bowl. They were either cracked or too expensive. At the Lil' Calypso Festival at Lake Martin, I found this old, hand-hewn, gorgeous one! I must say that being outside, my perspective must have been off because it is really big sitting on the counter! Approx 20 wide, 9 inches tall and a whopping 46 inches long! My South Carolina friend who I met on here through their similar Dough Bowl told me that theirs, which is extremely similar, is a trencher style dough bowl and looks like the European style (some say Holland, Belgium, or France). This size normally had 3 women working it at the same time - 2 women on the same side, working the ends and another woman on the other side in the middle, rocking it back and forth while the two were making the dough. I've done the "Feed-N-Wax" first step, so there are before and after pictures. Any guidance and advice is welcome.
