I personally hand craft each Oak bread slicing guide in Lincolnton, Georgia one at a time. This guide is made from solid 3/4-inch oak lumber for the side rails and 1/2-inch oak veneer for the bread table. It will last a lifetime with proper care.

The guide is designed to cut three different thickness of bread 3/8-inch, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch quickly and easily horizontally. Select the width of guide that matches you loaf width. The minimum thickness you can obtain has a lot to do with the density and softness of the bread you are cutting. 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. Plus be usable by right or left-handed people.

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. If your mat wares out, you can purchase one locally.

Knife not included with guide.

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.

Clean your guide with a damp cloth. Do not soak in water or place in a dish washer.

Can you cut yourself on this guide? Absolutely! Use caution while slicing. Do not allow children to use the guide. Knives are sharp and will cut bread and you along with it. If you think you may injure yourself don't use the guide. Return it for a full refund. I want you totally safe and satisfied.

Your order will ship free.

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

A few words of advice:

For the 6 1/2 inch (overall width is 8 inches) and 5 1/2 inch (over all width is 7 inches) guides a 12-inch blade length bread knife is recommended.

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.

If your bread thickness needs are different than those listed above, message me your required thicknesses. It’s quite possible I can custom build a guide to meet your specific needs.

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 75 and this is my hobby not a money grabbing business.

The quality of the workmanship is beyond compare, and the wood is top quality. This is as much a work of art as it is utilitarian. I expect to use and care for this piece forever. I'd shop here again.

Looked at all the plastic and bamboo junk on Amazon and thought there had to be something better. This is wonderful oak, beautifully handcrafted with precision. The first thing I did to keep the oak from drying out was coat it with homemade spoon butter (80% food grade mineral oil, 20% beeswax) and let it sit overnight before buffing the residue off. That gave it a beautiful color and finish. Then I sliced a loaf of homemade low carb bread (I'm T2D), some 3/8" for sandwiches, some 1/2" for toast, and a couple 3/4" slices for French toast. Quick work to make very even slices. I bought a very sharp Mercer 12" bread knife from Amazon for around $25 which made the job a breeze. This will work so nicely on hamburger/hot dog buns because I can set them flat on their bottom instead of holding them upright on their edge. Great purchase!

I am very happy with my new bread slicer. The quality and craftsmanship is wonderful and it does a perfect job slicing different types of bread. It is something that you can pass on in a family knowing that it will last for many years and generations. Thank you for this innovative solution to bread slicing!!!

Very well made item. I am so happy with this purchase. Highly recommend!
