My son is a really good bread baker.
And, tomorrow is my wife’s birthday.
Birthday present & justified shop fun!
Turn one big old oak board into a Bread Slicer!
A little jointing.
A little cutting.
A little measuring.
(14 slices, and it just worked itself out evenly to 1/2” each, plus a 1/8 kerf for the knife to pass through easily.)
Some shelf liner adhered to the bottom with spray adhesive so it doesn’t slide around on the kitchen counter.
And presto, a birthday present and some shop fun.
I didn’t use any glue and didn’t cover the screws with plugs in case one of the sides have to be replaced in the future. The fingers flex a little because of depth of cut, and I’m figuring some where down the road, one will probably give.
The General Finishes salad bowl finish really made the grain look nice.
(I will spare you my gift wrapping picture. No one should be subjected to that king of imagery ! LOL)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
