Full disclosure, I saw a picture of this knife block on Pinterest a while back and loved the look. I had no idea of how hard this would be to make if I wanted it to look good. I used Cardinal/Blood wood for the body with Maple for the accent pieces and some Bubinga for the center section. Getting the face rays to fit with the quarter circle at the base tested my abilities. I probably spent the better part of a month working on this and spent considerable time in insuring that it went together in the proper order. This block will hold a total of 9 knives with slots for 2-6” Chef’s knives, 2-3” paring knives and 5-5” kitchen knives. The block is 10” high and wide with another 1” for the base. It is finished with 3 coats of wipe on Poly. The main cook say’s the it will look real nice on her kitchen island.

Looks like a Japanese fan. Nicely done. Is it full of Japanese Steel?

Wipe on Polyurethane. Basically a thinned down polyurethane that you wipe on with a lint free cloth. It dries fast. I’ve been using the Minwax version.
