homemade wood proofing box.
« on: November 03, 2022, 10:52:10 AM »
Made myself a wooden proofing box!

Was sitting in my back garage thinking about myself and as I looked up in the rafters I realized I had some pieces of rough cut pine boards that have been sitting there for a good 15 years. So I built a dough box, no fancy corners or anything like that, I'm not much of a woodworking guy by any means but I have a planer I aquired some years ago and I know how to glue, nail & screw. Just need to make the lid.

Thanks.

Inside dimensions are 14.5"x10.25"x3.5"

I finally have a proofing box the size I want. :)

It's nice when you can build something that meets your needs :)

One more question, how many balls do you plan on filling your box with?

Idk lol. I pretty much do the same routine every week (sometimes twice a week) I make 2 15" pizzas, balls are around 435-445g each, those will fit with room to spare. I bought the Versa 16 so I may bake some extras for neighbours/friends to pick up, if I decrease to 13" balls I think I could get 5 in there. Made it big enough for that option.

I've pretty much switched to RTF, I think a wooden box is the better choice.

Thanks. I'm far from dialing in my dough/process but it's always good to see options of where I can go :)

Looks great. I would like to do this but I sold off my woodworking tools when I moved a few years ago. It's really quite hard to find wooden boxes online in the size I want, not to mention most don't specify if they are food grade.

Pretty sure if there is no finish (varnish) on the box it would be considered food grade, eg. cutting boards, all kinds of different woods used for those.
 
No reason you couldn't make one using just a handsaw, glue, screws and a pine board.

Lowes and Home Depot both stock thin poplar boards in a variety of widths that can be cut to length to fit a plastic box. They will have a saw and a miter box you can use in the molding/millwork isle. No tools or assembly required.

Good idea, I didn't know they had saws you could use.

Yeah Iím pretty sure they will make the cuts for you, but theyíve got like a quarter inch tolerance or something I believe.

Every Home Depot or Lowes I've ever been to has a handsaw and miter box in the millwork section. They sell trim by the foot, so you have to be able to cut off the length you need. They usually have a tape measure there too, but if not, borrow one from the hardware section.

This is good to know. Iíve only ever seen them cutting for others, but Iíll admit Iím a novice and have just started projects like this with my first house.
