Vintage Baker's Board

Everything old is new again....



This baker's board is from 


I was so excited to see it in their catalog... 
I have the same one only mine was made by my
Great Grandfather more than 75 years ago.

When something works... it works. 
It has a ledge facing down that goes over the ledge of the counter, and a ledge facing up to catch the rolling pin 
from going off the board.


My Great Grandfather made mine for my 
Great Grandmother to make bread.
Obviously, it is a good idea that keeps on working.

My baker's board sits on display in my kitchen and I think of them every time I use it.

I'm glad West Elm sees the need for
a great thing!
