DIY Bread board holder

July 9, 2017

 

 

 

 

     The beauty of being an antique dealer for almost 30 years now is having all the wonderful fragments to work with. Every day when I go to work I find items that once were something, but now are just a question of what to do with. 

 

     So at the same time creating sales for the antique dealers within my shop I am able to re-create items and make them useful once again. 

 

Todays project is an old bread board that was never rounded on one side, and a dozen rake ends. I guess the rake ends could have been useful for a peg rack, but I needed a rack to hold my bread boards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 So I drilled holes and lined the rake ends 21/2 “ apart in rows. (When drilling the holes I put a piece of masking tape on the drill bit so I would drill the same depth on all holes. It worked great and after I removed it from the drill bit.) I did 3 rows because the board was only 13”x 9”. You could do this on a larger scale and use it for a dish rack.

 

 This was a pretty simple but useful project. Recycle, repurpose and reuse.
