Vintage Baker's Board

Everything old is new again...

A century year old pastry board and the story www.homeroad.net
I see these pastry boards in stores and catalogs and I'm happy to see that the design is the same as the one in my kitchen. 

The one I have however was made by my Great Grandfather probably close to a century ago.

When something works... it works and I guess that's why the design hasn't changed much in all these years. 

One side of the board has a ledge facing down that goes over the edge of the counter, and the other side has a ledge facing up to catch the rolling pin from going off the board.

My Great Grandfather made mine for my Great Grandmother so she could make bread. 

Back then that's just what you did when you needed something... you made it. 

Obviously, it is one good idea that keeps on working through the years.

My baker's pastry board sits on display in my kitchen because I don't do much baking anymore but I think of my Great Grandparents every time I use it.
