Walnut Bread Bin

Well, not much to say really …I bought some Walnut (wood) offcuts from eBay and made a bread bin.

I wanted to see how difficult it was to do a dovetailed box. It took a bit of time, but generally I did OK. I’m not sure how often I’ll be dovetailing, but it is a very strong box, due mainly to the dovetailing.

The handle is made from Sumach (Rhus Glabra) and the rest is Walnut apart from the little shelf thing which is 3mm bamboo (skewers for kebabs) and untreated.

The constructivist carving is one I adopted from something I found online, so not entirely original … but carving “BREAD” seemed a bit tame.

On to the next……
