Learn about Dough Bin

Sometimes referred to as a kneading trough. It is a rectangular, trough-like wooden bin, with inwardly sloping sides, made to stand on a trestle base. The interior is usually partitioned, one side holding dry flour, the other for kneading the bread dough. The bin has a solid wooden lid, used as an ironing board or side table in farmhouse kitchens. Australian examples, both in cedar and pine, have survived, dating to early colonial times, but rarely come onto the market.
