My partner asked for a breadbox and bought a handle from Anthopologie for it. That handle was the only thing I had to work on. Although the design was overly simplistic, and I didn’t plan it all the way through, I was able to bring it to something of a finish. Double rabbet joints. Finding appropriately sized “oil-rubbed” hinges was difficult, but I found some at BricoStore in Budapest (Hungary). I put plastic feet from Ace on the bottom, to keep the box off the counter because it often gets wet. External finish: Danish oil. Internal finish: mineral oil.

Nice looking bread box. I started in woodworking back in the early 70’s building bread boxes….nice to see they are coming back again.
