In the past bread was just placed in the corner on a wire rack where the cabinet now rest. My wife asked me to make her a cabinet for the bread to go in. I used pine shelving board for the material. It is finished with water based Polyurethane.

I used pocket holes to assy the facing. I attached the facing with bisquets. I used my recently finished router table to cut the slots in the doors. Because of spacing problems with her dish rack I made the doors to tip up and slide inside the cabinet on pins.

My wife was well pleased with the cabinet. It was a little lighter in color than the Maple kitchen cabinets but didn’t look to bad.

Diddo, what “therookie” said.

That is a really nice bread box. I like the grooved track idea on the doors.

I have the Kreg Pocket Hole kit, whole thing. One of these days, I am going to take it out of the box. On the bright side, I use the heck out of their clamps for all manner of things.

Really like the doors. I may have to “borrow” your idea on this one.

Thanks for the comments.

Feel free to copy at will. One point to note is when I inserted the doors they would sag to the rear & bind. I had to go back and put a runner to support the rear of the door when open. You can just see it in the pic with the door open. I cut a rabbit in a short piece of wood and glued to side to form a track to support the door. I also pegged & glued the door pins on the side that shows but didn’t on other side so pins could be easily removed in case the door or pins got damaged.

Prplhrtjarhead I use my kreg pocket hole tool almost exclusively for face frames. I believe if you would use yours one time you would agree.

If the wife is pleased you got it right!
Fine looking bread box and it is a appliance and not part of the cabinets so it becomes a accent piece and should be in contrast .
Cant wait for that beautiful pine colour that comes with time.
Well done .

ldl…Broke out my Kreg Pocket Hole Jig tonite. Watched the enclosed video, it was still in the wrapper. So I have to admit, I am a little embarrassed at having admitted to not using such a fine piece of equipment.

While I find the Kreg jig extremely easy to use, I do have to admit, I am a huge fan of rabbets, as well as mortise and tenons. With that said, I will definitely find more uses for the Kreg

Nothing wrong with those types of joinery but for speed of assy and strength especially on face frames I love mine. You can glue or not glue and sometimes I do both. I’m not good with the mortice & tinion yet so this werks for me. I think the more you use it the more you will like it. I have butt jointed shelves wit it also. Lots of uses.

ldl, you are absolutely right! Fast and strong. I love it for sure and it will be more of “go-to” jig for me now that I have used it. Still trying to figure out some things as far as my “style.” Might have to come up with some sort of combination, pocket-hole/mortise and tenon joinery!

Thanks for encouraging me to use it!
