Re: Custom timber roll door bread box


RamonCarreon can I ask what the top bit if for? I had a similar bread box which I gave my daughter but the roll top when all the way to the back where it met a flat back bit of timber. If you have already explained this please excuse as I've only just joined.

I am keen at doing my bit of handywoman work and try to give most things a go.

Cheers

Re: Custom timber roll door bread box

Hey Jason.. so sorry it has taken me so long to reply.. I learned my skills from my father who is sort of a jack of all trades including being a builder and architect, as well as a retired wood shop and welding teacher. I’ll try my best to upload any projects that the community may be interested in. Cheers for the welcome.

Hi Jenn,

Not sure if I understand the question but I’ll give it a crack. I used my router (with jig) to cut a groove that goes down the backside. The roller door actually stops when it hits the bottom piece (at the back). If you want, I can email you the plans. Just let me know.

Great to hear back from you @ramoncarreon. We are looking forward to seeing more projects from you in the future.

 

Perhaps you could post those plans here rather than emailing them to @Old-gal24 so other community members could also replicate your terrific work.

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason

Re: Custom timber roll door bread box

Thank you for your reply.  I meant the raised top, is there a reason for that.  The one I had the top was resessed, level this the sides.

I thought maybe a hidden top for knives or something like that..  Only a question... from a Learner...

Re: Custom timber roll door bread box

All good Jenn, 

I have attached the plans below. However they are in inches. My Dad sent me them from the states. You can either scale the measurements or if you’re like me, most of my measuring tools have both types of measurements. I built mine out of standard pine from Bunnings but if you can get your hands on some hardwood (especially for the door slats) I think it would be better because it will fall on its own due to the added weight. Hope this helps. All the best.
