DIY Bread Box

Build a beautiful DIY bread box to store your bread and keep it contained on your counter.

I hate having loaves of bread in bags all over my kitchen counters. Not enough to stop eating bread, but enough that I decided it was time to come up with a much prettier way to store those loaves. Nothing beats a loaf of fresh made bread or a crusty loaf of artisan bread. But storing those loaves is kinda a pain.Bread boxes are very easy to make and it is almost a crime to consider buying one - unless for some reason wood will not go in your kitchen. This particular bread box is based on one of the more common designs and is therefore easier to build than one with a roll-top lid. 

This stylish wooden bread box will help keep your bread and rolls fresh for many days. The box allows air to circulate around the bread so that it receives less moisture than it would in a sealed bag. The lift-type lid allows easy access, and the box size provides for large quantities of bread products to be stored. The style and design of this wood bread box will add a pleasing focal point to your kitchen counter top.
