Exceptional. I almost clicked by until I noticed the bookmatched grain on the face. Actually, I did click by, and I had to click back on my browser to figure out how the heck you did it!
I still don’t know how you cut such perfectly straight holes with the scrollsaw, lord knows I couldn’t do it. Really nice job and attention to detail.
I’d love to hear a little more about the process as I’ve never seen it done this way before. I’m sure you probably don’t have the time, but I for one think it’s blogworthy! Thanks for posting.

Walnut and holly were made for each other. Nice work.

This is beautiful! I hope you have some Wusthof Classics for it or some other high quality knife set because this block deserves the best.

I really like this one. The lighter accents are well placed.

Nice knife block Mike. I like the construction with the scroll saw cut top piece and great job cutting those so accurate. I’d love to see a blog on this knife block.

Great looking knife block! Your walnut looks amazing with those awesome grains. Great accents on those Holly splines and strips, very attractive wood combo. Great job!
