Magnetic knife holder. Made from beech, cherry, and pear.
On the back side I inserted ten N52 rare earth magnets, with 8lbs holding power. To start I cut a 2” groove on the back about 1/2” deep. I then drilled ten slots in the back with a Forster bit, and then used the router to bring the slots to within less than 1/8th inch of the front of the knife block holder. I sealed the magnets in their slots with silicone as they kept trying to attract to the magnets in different slots. Then put a 2” strip of wood to cover the back and hide the work. The magnets work great!
