Quick knife block inspired by my wife. Used cutting board scraps with a little plexiglass, takes up surprisingly little room on the counter top.

I dig it, no more guessing games as to which knife you’ll get. Are they supported by the pressure between the glass and the board? Or by the weight of the knife handle?

In the top section before glue up I created a dado and filled with inexpensive ceramic magnets just strong enough to keep the knifes upright, came up with that idea during the mockup as without the magnets the knives moved to easily.

Very smart idea! Like the design, plexiglass and the magnets and can hold a lot of knives. Great job!
