I can’t tell from the pictures, but what did you use for the interior; what holds the knives in? And how did you do it? It looks like you used those bamboo skewer/kabob sticks.
I have always loved the knife blocks that you can just stick one in there. I had never thought to build one myself; which is saying something since my wife complains that I will never let her buy another piece of furniture again since I can make them. I tell her that why should we buy something that I can make for the same price and better. :D

Great idea. Never saw one with that kind of interior. Is it the bambo skewers like Aaron said?
The plugs are a nice design element. Both structuraly and visually.
Keep it up.

Miki, Aaron and Scrapy yep it is the banboo skewers so the knifes just slide in and out.

Very nice idea. The skewers look great inside and looks like very functional piece. I would never have thought to do it that way. I’m going to favorite this one. Thanks for the post.

approximately how many scewers did you use if I may ask?

Hi Choppertoo. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. At our local dollar store they sell packages of 100 scewers. I used 15 packs per block. The next time I think I would use 10-12 packs.
