Life imitating art, or vice versa

Ideas come from many sources, some of them quite unexpected.  The pattern for the box top was based on an actual photo of a braided bread, and that same pattern was "tweaked" to make a segmented bread board.  To demonstrate the authenticity of the design, I braided an actual bread, using the wooden version as a model, and was struck by how similar they were.


  1. Where did you purchase Mahogany wood for the project? I cant find any > 3/4" thick.

  2. Try your local lumber yard to see if they have hardwood, or a local cabinet shop that might have cut-offs. Or, use a clear piece of 2x6 as a last resort, stained, if need be.
