Hi All:

My stepdaughter and her husband have been competing in a bunch of different obstacle course races (my body hurts just watching these things). One of her favorites has been the Spartan Race. So when she found a picture of this project on the internet, she asked me if I could make one for her.

After a brief search I found a .dxf file (http://www.instructables.com/id/Knife-Block/) originally made for a CNC router. I imported the file into Corel and printed the pattern and cut it with my scrollsaw. The engraving is done with a laser. The wood is ash (which I found to be a pain in the ash to work with LOL), with wipe on poly for the finish.

I was a little concerned about the blades being out in the open, but I’ve seen a bunch of open magnetic knife holders here on LJ, plus they don’t have any little one’s running around.
Comments are welcome…

Max

I thought it was “Sparty” being attacked by the claws of Wolverine….

As much as I hate to say anything nice about the “Other” school’s mascot, it does look really cool and you did an awesome job!

GO BLUE!!
