Metal wash surface. 9" x 16" in size.
The Ideal is a very early model of washboard for Canadian Woodenware Co. It has the metal wash surface and the metal is crimped with a original restored Brown and Boggs metal crimping machine from the early 1900’s. One of the most popular today with the small size and unbreakable wash surface.
At the Canadian Woodenware Company each washboard is hand-crafted using century old tools and machinery.
Each washboard is unique and one-of-a-kind, printed on the original letter press machinery from the turn of the century. Built to last.
Washboards that are both functional and decorative.
All our washboards are hand-crafted in the same way they were in the early 1900's. And there are many ways to use them. You can use your hand-crafted washboard for washing clothes, spot scrubbing, felting for crafting, as a musical instrument, camping, or simply as a beautiful decorative accent piece in your home.
