I know that my carpentry skills have a lot to go but I am especially proud of the creative aspect of this project.
My sister is getting married in 5 weeks, and she had been looking for a bread box. After spending weeks on Lumberjocks looking at Work-Bench designs, the concept hit me to create a bread box that resembled a workbench.
There are a lot of things that I am proud of in this project. To begin with, the top is my first successful glue-up panel out of pine. It was hand planed using a Stanley 10” inch plane from Lowes (it got the job done!)
The Oak frame was built using Kregg jig. It was finished with Danish Oil, and the top with Minwax Poly.
After racking my brain on what to do with the sides, I found the beautiful Bella wood paneling. It was the perfect touch!
My sister opened it yesterday at the shower and loved it. She truly has a one-of-a kind bread box.
Dimensions are 16” long, and 10” tall.
