plywood kneading board…?

September 12, 2008 - 12:11pm -- typeizcrazy

Hello all, unfortunately, there aren't a lot of forums for beginner soba makers so I thought I'd post my question up here since my question pertains to equipment we both have in common. I need a large kneading area and I was thinking of purchasing a 3/4 inch sheet of plywood and cutting it to the required size (4'x4').My concern is whether the adhesives that hold the plywood together would potential contaminate my dough as I knead it?Are there any "food safe" plywood boards out there? Thanks in advance.

In need of a kneading board!

Hello, I'm new here (I registered just to post this question!) and I'm
in need of a portable, sturdy and easily cleaned work surface for
kneading doughs.

I've been trying to price large wooden cutting boards but I'm not sure
how large of a work surface I'll really need to knead a loaf or two of
bread, or even if this is the right tool for the job.
