This is a pretty cool idea I had after looking at my magnetic tool holder in my shop and I said why not wrap that in wood and make it hold knives! I wrapped solid ceramic magnets in a mahogany box and it works just need better ideas to mount on the wall without screws to keep the flawless look, and without having to scrape the paint for adhesive caulk or products of the sort.

Very cool, maybe some dovetail shaped blocks screwed to the wall, with some stopped dovetail grooves starting at the bottom and stopping before coming out the top? So it would hang on the blocks. I don’t know, just a thought.

Fun idea, i may make one with some old magnets.

Idea for mounting, put a couple of washer shaped magnets on the wall with drywall anchors then just stick the block to the wall?
