…otherwise known as a breadbox too.
Here’s the link for you get started watching the series:
Why change the name? Oh, well, I have seen so many breadboxes with tambour openings I didn’t want anyone confusing what my intent was. Silly I know.
This design was planned out in detail in my head from the beginning. By that I mean sizing, methodology, technique, wood everything, and I knew exactly what I wanted from filing off the brass screw heads to rounding the interlocking sections.
Part of my reasoning for not using dovetails was to rethink the joint to include metal fastenings for the joint securement. Also I knew too that I would not need clamps to seat everything. I have indeed filed the heads off screws for three decades and did it particularly when making bandsaw boxes was part of my daily bread work. In that case I didn’t need to use the screw heads to hold the boxes together as the construction methods did that just fine.
In my bread stow however I wanted more than just glue as the joint itself is less mechanical than say traditional joints like dovetails. But, more, the heads form full retention by my filing them into a rim that’s recessed into the wood.
I hope that you will join in watching this series as it is so very unique. I loved the idea through and through as I always seem to do with something new.
