My sister in law has a copper fetish, everything in her kitchen has to have some copper in it. When I built the pad for her pellet stove I even used copper speckeled grout.
This breadbox started out when I found the copper face pannel on the internet for around 10-15 bucks. I then downloaded some free plans of the net to get an Idea as to what a bread box should look like, and then built the unit around the copper face. We never had a breadbox as a kid, and at home we keep the bread in a drawer.
The breadbox is built from western red alder that I have reclamed and resawn. The finish is “Gerneral Finishes Candlelight”. It is an oil based stain with 2 coats of Minwax satin poly over the top. I wanted to try to make this look as if it was made in the “arts and crafts” time frame, and keep it a little primative to match the looks of her kitchen.
around 20 bucks.
