My neighbor talked me into building him an oak box to keep his collection of old pocket knives in. He provided input for dimensions and the trim. He’s pretty pleased with it. What do you think??

Must be quite a collection! Great job on this, thanks for sharing. If you could post a photo of the knives arranged in the box, that’d be useful to see.
