Actually, it was intended only as a small gimmick. I wanted to see what parts I need exactly to get a knife block with the required dimensions.
Finally, multiplexing is not exactly the first choice of a knife block.
I used a scrap piece and wanted to go to the test piece the whole again recreate with high quality wood.
The block is in use today, even if it is more beautiful wood …
The block itself consists of 6 plates 16 mm multiplex with the dimensions 240×160 mm.
In 3 of the plates are milled (deep 4 mm) respectively on the 240 mm two grooves over the entire length through. The distance depends on the knives are to have space in the block later.
Grind After slight and remove the chips are glued the 6 plates. The grooves or their location assigns one case to as desired.
After the glue harden the whole block is sanded clean. The sides should be beautiful plan.
The two feet are made of 18 mm multiplex, two triangles with a side length of 240×115 mm. Here you can to stand flat vary case of block steeper /.
These are sawing and grinding after the knife block glued
In conclusion, I have the whole treated with linseed oil and adhered to the two side parts 4 small rubber feet.
