Project Information

I made these two bread boards as Christmas gifts to friends in 2013. One was with walnut and the other maple. They were inspired by the Bulthaup bread board. But I wasn't going to pay $200 for it so I made it myself. I like the simplicity of the design, simple box joint.

Gorgeous! I love the idea of a drawer for the crumb tray. A lot of designs have the top of the breadboard recessed into the top of the crumb tray. With your design you can store it vertically and everything stays together. I need to make a wedding gift and had planned to make a serving tray, a full size cutting board and 8 sandwich sized boards. Now I think I will add a breadboard like this as well. Thank you for sharing your project.

Awesome job! These boards are so cool. Can you share some tips on how you made the tray? Thanks!

FullStack - Think picture frame, sort of. The edges of the tray are 3/4"x3/4" with glued 45 degree miter. The width is 1/2" wider than the inside dimension of the board. The bottom of the tray is glued 1/4" pieces. I created 1/4" dados on all 4 edges to accept the tray. I created 1/4" dado on each side of the board, and 1/4" rabbet on the two sides of the tray to create sliding tracks. I then fill the back of the dados on the board about 1/2" so that you can't slide the tray through the back. Hope this helps.

Bstrom - I put some coats of butcher block finish on the maple one. It was a little dark so I didn't do anything with the walnut one.
