I was looking at an unknown LJs stuff and was reminded that I had made something like that. It’s not in your LJs Gallery. Put it there. Okay. (I don’t know about you, but I obey the voices in my head.) Description C&P from my website.
So called because this is my very first attempt at designing and making a Knife Block. I think it came out very well. Don’t you?
It’s made of three different Wood Species, only one of which I can name with any certainty. That would be the “nose piece” – that darkest bit right up front. It’s Cocobolo. (Or is it Padauk?) The light Wood that makes up the bulk of the Thing is either one of the many Maples extant, or, some kind of Cherry. I only know that it’s all from the same block of Wood, which I bought online upwards of a year ago, and didn’t think to label it. (Sometimes, my head is just a hat rack). The dark piece that hols the smaller of the single Knives is a Wood I’ve been calling Mahogany, and still do so call it. It’s from a couple of chunks of timber that used to have an RV parked on top of. I rescued those chunks from the dustbin of history and have used it to good effect, and will continue to do so until I run out of it.
[It’s been in my site for ages. More like Sputnik that blew up on the launch pad.]
Thanks for looking.
Wait her a minute…..........
No. That’s all. Enjoy.
