Wooden Indian dough bowls or trenchers are handmade bowls, carved by hand from native yellow pine and begin as a piece of a downed tree trunk. Native North American 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 to create incredible primitive home décor and native southwest art.

These traditional southwest 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 in unfinished or stained condition. Indian Native American dough bowls are used by the Tarahumara Indian people but are sold for primitive decorations or rustic ware. Wooden bowls or dough trays are used to catch corn meal as it is ground with a stone and have become well known native symbols.

The rustic character of primitive bowls for unfinished country bowls or western stained dough bowls for rustic primitive and southwest decorating is unsurpassed. Rawhide laced wood bowls add a sense of rustic beauty to primitive designs to create a natural atmosphere for log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any ranch or country decor.
