It all started with this as a Christmas present .

A buddy ask me to make a little wooden holder to hold these two so his Son could put them in a drawer and I ask
how about a knife block ?
This is the reason I made these adaptors for my clamps and they worked real nice clamping the cutting board .
Well this idea of a cutting board with a removable knife block with a couple extra slots for knifes that I am sure he will want came to be .
The board is maple with a mortise that the tennon on the knife block drops into and is held there with a steel pin and the weight of the block to keep it secure in place (very simple )
Now he can have the board and block on the counter or store it in a drawer and the mortise also can be used for a handle for cleaning .
Glued with Tite Bond 3 and I hope it s as good as they say it is .
Size is 16” x14” x1 3/8” with butcher block finish .

Comments are always welcome .

That’s a good multi-function solution.

A cutting board wit a fitted knife storage. That’s thinking out of the circle. Nice job Klaus.

That’s a great idea, Klaus. Be careful – you may be making these and nothing else from now on. Nice work.

Fantastic idea. Saves on counter-top space when the knives are stored and makes a sweet looking addition to a clean and simple cutting board. Adding a piece of art like a Shin to your art is a marriage made in happy. With as nice as this turned ou,t I hope it doesn’t get stored in a drawer. Anyone would be proud to have that on the counter.
