Thread: Who has a DoBoard?

    Who has a DoBoard?

    I'll be honest - I got mine last year for my birthday and have used it maybe 3 times...one of which was last night! So I'm just wondering what's the best way to clean it? I used it with parchment paper in-between the board and rolling pin, so really it's not too dirty, but there is grease that still comes thru the parchment...do you wash it? (I'm a little afraid to submerse it in water - then I'll have to worry about it not drying right, mold, etc...) do you just wipe it off with a damp rag? does anyone oil it and if so where do you get the oil from? thx!

    I have a doboard that my son built me...I love it....I use it for all my cookies! As for clean up....well...I roll my dough between sheets of waxed paper. I do wash it off with a damp cloth, and once a month or so, I give it a good cleaning with mild soap and water, then let it dry, then give it a rub with some wood oil that I got at Bed Bath and beyond. Don't be scared of it, treat it like you would a wooden cutting board. Water will not ruin in, just don't let it sit and soak in the water.

    Here is the board that my son built for me. Mine is not adjustable, because I only roll my dough at 3/8 of an inch, so no need for it to be adjustable.

    Yes Libby, my 16 year old Autistic son mad this with help from his para professional in shop glass. I sent the teacher a link to the original do board, and told them the measurements that I wanted and this is what came home with him! He even made the rolling pin! Makes me soooo proud to be his mom...and thankful for all the wonderful teachers and para professionals at his school.....they get LOTS of cookies!

    Ok thanks for answering my question. (doboard) I didn't know what it was. Wow it looks great. I am an EA for the school too. We used to be called para's. I am in middle years, so no shop classes yet.

    It is beautiful, he did a wonderful job! Although I still don't understand the concept/how it works, sounds like those who have them love them... Do you put dough in the sections, roll & then peel it out?

    That is beautiful but i'm a little lost too. I've heard of them before but how do they work?

    basically it is a square frame and the center pulls out, you can slide it into the slot that has the appropriate measurement you want for your dough, then lock it in place, the center will then be recessed, you place the dough in the center, and roll, it will be a uniform roll....kinda takes the place of the rolling pin rings or dowels...
