I've just perfected a homemade bread recipe and I'm very pleased with the results. Sadly, I cannot say the same for my slicing abilites. Is there an easy, do-it-yourself way to make a bread slicing guide or something that would help make my slices nice and even? I've tried using a sharp, large bread knife and an electric knife and I still end up with oddly shaped slices, and our local second-hand store didn't have any old guides in stock. Thanks!

Daniel, this is an excellent question. We often have trouble cutting bread in even slices too. Although we have to say that a wave-style knife (like this model from Wüsthof
) really, really helps. It gives you a lot more control and precision than the long, serrated blades.
You can also order a cutting board with a built-in slicer:

, $19.99 at Target
Readers, any DIY kitchen tips or hacks for getting thin, evenly-sliced bread?
