Made from maple scraps I had been given, plus some cherry scraps used for legs. I have wanted to make one of these for quite sometime now, as a chef I couldn’t stand having all of my knifes just tossed into a drawer, so here is the solution. I like the rear legs being tucked under a bit, it gives the illusion of the block floating. One little challenge was that my table saw died, just after I started cutting the dados. Oh well, sears will be out to fix it in a couple days, I think it is the starter capacitor ( the $70 in home 5 year service plan just paid for itself, with 2 years to spare). I switched over to my router table, which gives me smoother dados than my dado blade anyway. Finished with mineral oil and shellac. After my table saw gets fixed I will make a matching endgrain cutting board.
Thanks for checking it out, all comments are welcome.
