Hi Everyone

Had a new client call me last week inquiring about my custom knife block that was seen on and wanted to know if I was interested in designing one for him. Sure!!! He sent me the scaled template of what he wanted to include and chose Walnut and Cherry for the woods. I added the bookmatched walnut on the base to give it a little artistic flair.The slots for the knives were cut out on the scroll saw. Fun project

the bookmatched end is a wonderful touch, very nice product at the end of the day! Can you show us a close up of the knife slots?

That’s one good looking block; I’ll bet you’ve got another new client for many more projects.
