Make A Bread Board

resources for the project described in my book ‘Complete Woodworking’.

make a bread board like thisThe dimensions for the board can be varied depending on what timber you have available and the size of the bread knife used.

Although the cutting lists specify that the board is composed of two approximately equal width boards jointed together it could be made from any number of boards. Actually the more parts the better as this would limit warping.

You could experiment with different woods to get a stripy effect, maple and cherry perhaps.

You need a long router bit to cut the slot for the knife. I get my bits from Wealden Tools, the one you need is part number T206S. You may need to insert the cutter slightly beyond the indicated mark on the shank to get the depth.
