I made this a few years ago with the idea of providing a drawer so that the cutting knifes could be kept handy with the board.

That is a great design, I love the knife drawer.

THAT’S excellent!

I don’t think you can get away with calling it merely an “attempt.”

Thanks for the nice comments.
@chrisstef – I wouldn’t mind using your shop :-)
@amagineer: My wife is happy with it, but she won’t use it for a cutting board and only keeps it for display purposes. But whatever makes her happy is fine :-)
