A wooden rainbow. Worthy of some fine kitchen steel. Great job.

Roger you have designed a wonderful knife block, with nice color combo. WHen I built mine I used spacers to create the knife slots, but I like your design better.

Thanks to all of you for the compliments. This project was just one of those that come to you when you are laying awake some night wondering what to build next. It has proven to be quite functional.

How did you clamp on those at such an angle?

Mente – You are very perceptive. Clamping this up was indeed a problem. On the second one I built I built a jig arrangement and put all kind of clamps and blocks on it. Sorry I didn’t take any pictures.

Ideas is what this website is about. If I can be of assistance let me know. Clamping it all together is the major issue. Try and have the clamping worked out before you start applying glue.
