I got this idea for our kitchen knives from a magazine (which one escapes me for the moment) but I took a bit of artistic license for my version. The knives are supported by literally hundreds (over a thousand) bamboo skewers crammed into the box. The bottom is lined with cork. I had a bit of fun doing the inlay by hand—that is—without the use of a bushing set on my router. It turned out to be easier than I thought it was going to be as long as I kept my chisel razor sharp (is there any other kind??).
Woods Used: Box is African mahogany, Inlay is yellowheart and Caribbean rosewood, splines are purpleheart
Finish: General Finishes Seal-a-cell with Arm-R-Seal topcoats.
Comments welcome…..as usual.
