Ok, so here we go.
Remember this is a beginner course so everything will be very basic.
For those more advanced and like the design, just go ahead and make it.
The design is simple. 3 fixed sides and 2 fixed ends with a hinged door. The handle it made the exact height so that the door it is level when opened to use as a small cutting board to prepare sandwiches.
Lets start off with a plan drawing.
All the dimensions are there. The 15” length can be adjusted a little if you want, but it should fit any normal sized loaf of bread.
I started out by cutting all my stock to size. The door should be left a little wider than the 6 3/4” in the drawing. This will be cut to the exact length when it is fit to the box.
Next tilt your table saw blade to 15 degrees. This doesn’t need to be exact just get it as close as you can. Now take your (oversized 6 3/4”) door piece and cut one long edge at 15 degrees. This is the edge that will be at the top of the box. The other edge will be cut when we fit the door.
Then do the same with your bottom (7 3/4”) piece. Try to cut it so that your angel gets as close to the edge as you can. It will be slightly rounded by sanding so it is not critical.
Then you want to change the angle of the blade to 12-13 degrees. Then cut the length of one of your 5 1/2” pieces.
This will be the piece for the top of the box. Just try to cut it so that you angel gets as close to the edge as you can.
What you will end up with is a gap when the door is closed. This way if the piece is the piece is a little long or short, it will still match at the top where it shows.
That’s it for this part. If you have any questions just let me know.
