Replace that Old Dingy Breadboard

The last place I lived in had a very used breadboard in the kitchen, like very very used. I think it was original to the house in the 50’s. Lucky for me I work at a hardware store and know just how easy it is to replace and now you will too.

Woodfold Breadboard Alder

Here at we carry a solid hardwood Alder breadboard by Woodfold in three widths, 16″, 18″, and 24″. They are all 22″ long and 3/4″ thick. The nifty thing about ours is that there is a finger pull on both ends with two different wood species so you can decide which fits best with your cabinets. One end is Alder, the other end is Oak. Woodfold apply’s an FDA approved sealant to the permanently laminated breadboard to resist moisture penetration. The nice thing about breadboards is after one side gets worn from knife marks and food stains you can flip it over and use the other side. If your current breadboard or empty space where your breadboard should be isn’t one of the three widths we offer then order the size up and cut it for a perfect fit. Since I don’t own a saw (I live in an apartment) I brought it over to my parents house to have my dad cut it while Mom and I talked about their upcoming vacation.

Epco Breadboard ScrewIf you’d rather your breadboard be flush with the front of the cabinet you can install a knob on the breadboard edge so you can pull it out of the opening. We carry a few mini knobs with wood screw ends so they can be affixed directly to the breadboard. We also have a combo screw that is #8-32 on one end and a wood screw on the other end. That way you can affix any cabinet knob you want that works with the #8-32 screw.

Woodfold Breadboard SlidesMaybe you’re lucky enough to be putting together a brand new cabinet and you want to include a breadboard then you’ll want to grab a pair of slides. They have a 13/16″ channel to accommodate the 3/4″ thick breadboard.
