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.
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 "firstname.lastname@example.org". 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.
By selecting the correct width guide to accept bread loaves up to 7 1/4 inches wide with the 7 1/4 inch option, 6 1/2 inches wide with the 6 1/2 inch option and 5 1/2 inches wide with the 5 1/2 inch option. Any of the three options will cut slice thicknesses from 1/8 inch up to 1 inch thick using a horizontal cutting method by raising and lowering the guides slicing table. Notice in the pictures the saw cut lines on each side board of the guide. The lines are there so that you can set the depth equally and easily when adjusting your bread slicing thickness. The adjustment is quick and easy to accomplish yet still slices perfect slices of bread. Slice thicknesses less than 1/4 inch can often be a challenge and has a lot to do with the density and softness of the bread you are slicing.
The guide comes completely assembled. Simply loosen the four wing nuts using your fingers to adjust the bread tray up or down. Align the tray with the lines on the two sides so it is equal distance from the knife slot and hand tighten the wing nuts. You are ready to slice. Tools are not required to make the adjustment.
This slicing guide will ship with a anti slip sheet mat that is placed under the slicing guide to stop it from sliding on your countertop while slicing. If your mat wares out you can purchase one locally.
Videos are available showing the guide being used by going to “You Tube” and searching for “Mystery Lathe”.
Each bread slicing guide is hand crafted by myself in Lincolnton, Georgia from solid 3/4 inch oak lumber. The guide will last a lifetime with proper care. Just clean with a damp cloth. DO NOT SOAK IN WATER.
The finish used is food grade mineral oil that meets US FDA requirements for food contact surfaces, and is safe for all food preparation surfaces. The penetrating quality of food-grade mineral oil brings out the depth of grain in wood and helps prevent drying and cracking. You may apply more Mineral oil or cutting board oil as the wood dries over time.
Your order will ship free the same day or the next business day from when I receive the paid order.
A few words of advice:
The 7 1/4 inch guide has an overall width of 8 3/4 inches and will not work with a short 10 inch bread knife. I use one that is 14 inches long. For the 6 1/2 inch (overall width is 8 inches) and 5 1/2 inch (over all width is 7 inches) guides I use a 12 inch bread knife.
The guides cutting slots for the knife are 3/16 inches wide. If you are going to be using an electric knife make sure you check the thickness at the tip of the blade where the two blades are connected together. If it measures 3/16 inches or greater you will not be able to get the blade into the slot to slice your bread.
The bread needs to rest on your counter and cool down to room temperature. I find that the longer it rest 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.
If your bread thickness or widths needs are different than those listed above, message me your required thicknesses or width. It’s quite possible I can custom build a guide to meet your specific needs.
Use caution while slicing with a knife to avoid injury. Knife not included with guide.

This is beautiful work but I wish I has bought the vertical style. This one is awkward for me and kind of lets a standing loaf “wander”. Once you decide which to buy, it’s a great purchase.

My husband loves this bread slicer for his homemade bread. It's very sturdy, and he loves that the thickness can be adjusted. He also bought the recommended bread knife. We'll get a lot of use out of this lovely piece. Thank you!
