This is a knife block that I built for my sister/brother-in-law as a wedding gift. The main block is African Mahogany and the steak knife block is curly maple.

Thanks for the comments guys!

The main block is six individual boards all glued together. I cut the slots in them prior to glue up on the router table.

I was wondering that myself when I clicked on the project pic… The only thing I could think of was a router. Finished project looks fantastic! Did you put rubber/plastic feet on it to keep it from sliding?

Yep, I put six little (1/2” diameter, 1/8” tall) rubber feet on the bottom to prevent it from sliding around on the counter. Thanks for the nice comment!
