Modern Bread Box

My wife has been asking for a place to store our bread that has been sitting out on the counter for a while. And since pantry space is a hot commodity, I decided to build this sweet bread box. I used classic mortise and tenon joinery to build the box, plus some other traditional techniques and tools. My go-to wood is always walnut, but I also incorporated some hard maple for the drawers and front for added contrast on the counter.

Now our bread will finally have a home. I hope you enjoy the build video, and it inspires you to build your own.

Have a great day!

Great build and the results speak for themselves.
Nice combo of wood. What kind of finish did you use? Some of my builds still smell like the finish I used a year later. Mainly the tung oil/b.l.o. mixes I sometimes use.a
Keep it up!

Thank you! I used a plant based penetrating oil / wax finish so it should be good in about a week or two.

Very nice bread box, and not the normal kind. Great wood combinations in the build. Well done.

What is the purpose of the 2 small drawers at the top?

Thanks! I tried to give it a modern twist! The two drawers will hold some small jellies and jams.
