This is a bread box I just completed.
It is a gift that was requested by a friends eldest daughter for her wedding.
The breadbox is made from western maple, with quilted western maple(from the same tree) for the door panel. the drawer is made from clear yellow cedar, with a birch bottom, and a birds eye maple kerfed block to hold knives. the back is a raised pine panel from a single board.
The carcass is constructed with through dovetails. as well as threw wedged tenons(diagonal wedges).
I had initially used walnut wedges, but when I applied finished, the end grain walnut caused problems, so i replaced the walnut wedges with rosewood wedges.(getting the old ones out was quite difficult)
This was a fun project, that i used as a experiment to try different techniques for some of the joinery than i normally would. all the joints were cut with hand tools, as well as was most of the stock preparation.
guess i will start planning the next one.
