This invention has relation to a molding or kneading: board for culinary purposes. An important desiderntum in this class o devices has been to prod nce n hoard whieh will i not take stain or grease, will always have a smooth surface, aeool temperature, will he light and durable, and will not sounand may be easily cleansed. To produce such an arlicle at a minimum expense is the object of my invention; and with sueh end in viewI shall proceed to describe in detail the construotiou of such invention.
Reference may be had to the acoompzinying drawings and to the letters of reference thereon, in whieh Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved board or tray, and. Fig. 2 is a crosssectionnl view of the same.
In Carrying out my invention I take nishcet of metal or other suitable material of sui'fi c'ient long! 11 and width and bend or shape the some so as to form one end into a transverse wall a, which is carried upwardly at approximately right angles to the body portion A, and in the upper edge of this wall a may be inserted a wire I), to give strength and durability to said article. I also bend or shape the opposite side edges so as to form shallow verticnlly-disp0sed walls 0 c, which taper from their inner to thei r outer ends as shown, and
' nesting off of the board, only in some in stances render the born-d very convenient in dipping; up the llour as a scoop, it made of a suitable size for that purpose. These articles nniybe iornued l'roin g1'n1iEti-:-\Yure or from any sheet meiah and in some cases the surface may be finished by any polishing process.
