About a year ago, I made this little project to use up some small cutoffs of maple. This is a quick project and makes a nice gift.
This Bread slicing miter box will make 30 degree slices from either side so it is useful in households with left-handers and right-handers.
The core of the design is an insert with a 30 degree knife slot and another insert for 90 degree cutting. The inserts are slid into dovetail slots in the back fence of the bread cutting “miter box”. The 30 degree insert is installed in one direction for left handers and flipped to the other direction for right handers.
It is finishd with mineral oil.
