I can’t take credit for the inspiration on this project. Another LJ posted something similar. I meant to favoite his but I guess I didn’t. If I find his post I will add it here to give him credit for the inspiration.

A couple of weeks ago I walk walking down the beach with my daughter. She picked up a rock & said this one looks like a loaf of bread daddy. Remembering back to the afore mentioned post I knew what I had to do.

The blade and rivits are maple, the handle is walnut. The bread is, well,a rock of some sort. :) Not a big project but it was fun.

I think the bread even has raisins in it!

Looks like my wife’s been in the kitchen again…

Nice work – how did you cut the rock?

Fun project
This reminds me of a PBS show about someone finding a log looking substance and after research found that it was bees wax from sunken Spanish ships from hundreds of years ago I believe they found there’s in the ocean off of Astoria Oregon.

That looks like it would make a great kitchen island/table centerpiece, but I guess we know who won’t be asked to bring the bread to any Lumberjock picnics in your area.

What makes you think I didn’t use the knife to cut it Topamax?? <grin> Kidding of course. I called a local rock club & got connected with a guy who used a diamond blade saw.

Thanks. This piece now sits in my office on an end grain cutting board that I made from a book shelf that was left in one of our rentals. I should probably take a photo and post it. I thinks it’s neat because none of the wood has any finish on it so as to stay in tune with the rawness of the “bread.”
