DOUGH BOARD WITH BREAD BOARD ENDS
This is a nice old cutting board comprised of five pieces of wood held together with bread board ends. The back of the board is very smooth and has a very dark patina. the front is covered in an old mustard grain painted surface. The wood used is very clear of knots so I don't think it is pine. Perhaps it is poplar. the dough board measures46" long and about 22 1/4" wide. There is a hole in one end for hanging. Our camera is distorting this board it is actually evenly shaped and not rounded!
