I personally hand craft this bread slicing guide in Lincolnton, Georgia from solid 3/4-inch poplar lumber for the side rails and 1/2-inch birch veneer for the bread table. Even though Poplar is softer and less expensive than Oak this guide will last a lifetime with proper care. We are still using the original guide I made out of poplar lumber from 4 years ago and it is like the day it was first used. Clean with a damp cloth. Do not soak with water.

The guide is designed to cut two different thickness of bread slices quickly and easily horizontally. The slice thickness size is 3/8 plus 1/2 inches

The pictures show a loaf of bread that measures 5 1/2 inches wide x 7 inches long x 6 1/2 inches tall. By choosing the side of the guide you can slice your bread into the thickness the two sides are designed to cut. My goals were to make it easy to use, affordable, durable, easily stored and most of all slice's straight slices of bread every time.

The slicing guide ships with a anti slip mat that is placed under the slicing guide to stop it from sliding on your countertop while slicing.

Your order will ship free the same day or the next business day from when I receive the paid order.

Videos are available showing the guide being used by going to “You Tube” and searching for “Mystery Lathe”.

A few words of advice:

The 5 1/2-inch guide has an overall width of 7 inches and will not work well with a short 10-inch bread knife. I use one that is 12 inches long.

The bread needs to rest on your counter and cool down to room temperature. I find that the longer it rests the better it will slice. The minimum thickness you can obtain has a lot to do with the density and softness of the bread you are cutting.

Use caution while slicing with a knife to avoid injury. Knife not included with guide.

If you ever have any questions, issues or problems with your guide please call or text my cell phone: 315-868-3453 or email me at "mysterylathe@gmail.com". Give me a chance to make things right. Don't be surprised when I just say hello upon answering. This really is my personal cell phone. I'm 74 and this is my hobby not a money grabbing business.

CAUTION! When slicing bread with a knife be careful not to place your fingers in line with the cutting action of the knife. Do not allow children to use this product. Handle with care, knives are very sharp.

I love that the design of this slicing guide is one solid piece with no moveable or detachable parts to cause trouble. I used it last night on a wheat bread loaf, and the slices are so much more even and thin. Clean up was quick and easy with water. The seller even provides a helpful, non-slip mat.

Item was shipped quickly and such a nice, solid piece for my kitchen. Better than the mass market bread slicers out there! Thank you!

I have been a sourdough bread baker for eight years. Sourdough is very dense at times with a super hard crust. The slicer worked so well! I got wonderful thin slices on the one side of the slicer, then flipped it over, and got perfect toast slices on the second side. I highly recommend this product. Very well-made.

This works so well and I can finally get an even slice of bread. I am very happy with the solid quality of this bread slicer. Thanks so much
