Here is a knife block I made up using the one the came with my Wusdorf knives as a guide. It is basically 5 pieces of maple with slots cut wide enough to fit my specific knives the entire length of the block prior to glue up. I picked one of the pieces that had the best looking grain pattern for the top and mapped out the slots from there. After glue up I cut the front piece off that became the support. For that I cut a 45 degree angle off the block and rotated that piece to become the front.
The finish is three coats of clear shellac sanded with 220 between coats.
Quick, easy, and does not look half bad.
