I’ve made several breadboxes, this one I’ve just finished is for my son, Jason. All have roll top lids and handles made from spoons that my wife and I find at antique shops. Spoon handles are one of my signitures, the other is that all my breadboxes have baby breadboxes hidden inside one either side of the drawer. This Breadbox is made from sycamore with a chestnut finish. This is the first of my breadboxes with the drawer inside. The other breadboxes I’ve made had the drawer on top in the traditional mannor. The slats are all held together by two small cables, one one either side. The slats are made 3/8” thick with a roundover bit on one side and a bullnose bit on the other. This allows the slats to move in a joint like an elbow. To keep the groove lubricated, I just use candle wax.
