this project was made from 1.25” by 10.5” by 12’ long red oak salvaged from a church rebuild. I copied the plan from a wood projects mag. This was my first major project. It took me about three weeks to build.

That turned out very nice, should be able to store pleanty of bread in there. Did you make the tambour roll top also by gluing canvas on the back?

Good work Bryano. For a first attempt, I’d say you did very well.

Very nice work on the Breadbox! For the individual slats you cut for the roll top did you use a camfur rolled edge to the sides of each slat, a different edge or just squared off? I want to make a breadbox like this for my Mom I think she would love it.
