Breadboard Bread Bin Lid - in Cherry and Pine

A central strip of cherry, flanked by the two halves of a ripped pine board, give a pleasant contrast that will develop further over time.

Flip the lid, which is flat, over to use the underside as a breadboard.

The shellac finish can be easily re-polished, and being non-toxic is fine for cutting bread on.

Watch the short video of how I made it:
I'll show you the initial stock preparation, recessed handle details, glue up, flattening of glued up board, cutting out and sanding the irregular oval shape, softening the edges, and cutting the rebate that locates the lid on the bread bin. All that, in twelve and a half minutes, thanks to some video magic!
