The roll top bread box, as presented in Tommy Mac’s ‘Rough Cut’. Oak and walnut, Danish oil finish.

I don’t own jointer or planer, so all boards used are standard thickness from HD. Thick boards make it somewhat heavy.

Nice job, especially considering you are limited to HD lumber dimensions. Keep your eye out for a small planer. The savings of buying rough cut can more than pay for it and gives you many more options when building things.

Thank you guys. I will keep your suggestion in mind Gittyup – for now I build not nearly as much to justify a price of planner :) I wish…

Have your say...
