Making Of 'A Toaster'

Software used:

Select the four edges along the bottom of the toaster slot area.

In your top viewport, hold down shift and use your move gizmo to drag the edges so that they overlap and 'close up' the blank space.  This tells you that the edges you copied are directly below the top of the mechanism slot.
If you're confused read on and come back to this step.  You'll see what I mean.

Here you can see what we ended up doing.  We copied the edges at the bottom of the toaster slot so that it can make up the bottom.  Without these polygons, we would have a tough time making this shape.

Use the same "Shift + Drag" technique to copy those edges directly upward so that they are close (but not touching) the top of the mechanism slot.

Don't put it too close since you will have a hard time selecting them for this next step!

In this frame you can see that the two lengths of edges are not connected. That's alright; we've got a trick up our sleeve to put these two together.  Select "Target Weld" which is highlighted in the image at right. For each disconnected vertex, click on the vertex we just copied, and then click on the stationary vertex already attached to the rest of the toaster.
