Free Download: Simple Doughbox
The dough box was a functional piece found in many a country kitchen. The idea was that the cook would make a large batch of bread dough, knead it on the large work surface that formed the lid, then throw it inside the box and leave it to rise.
Once the dough had risen she would bring it out again, drop it once more on the surface of the lid and prepare it for the oven. Today, the piece is just as functional, though not used for dough. Most dough boxes are used as storage units, conversation pieces, and decoration.
They come in all shapes and sizes, depending upon the size of the house where they originated. Ours is a smaller unit 36" wide X 17" deep X 27" high. I found it in a book of American country antiques. It was dated to the early 1800s and was somewhat primitive in design.
I have changed nothing except to add hinges to the one-time lift-off lid. This makes it a little more functional and convenient. What can you use it for? How about storing linen tablecloths, napkins, etc?
