My daughter enjoys cooking so for a gift I bought her a decent set of kitchen knives with a standard knife block. I thought it would be nice to upgrade the block with this custom design , featuring the use of magnets hidden with in. I wanted to include the entire set so I had to come up with a design that would do just that ! I used a combo of woods, Walnut,Bloodwood and the center divider is a plywood veneered with Wenge. All of the utensils are held in place via Earth magnets and small brass pins as reference points (added insurance)! Below are some pics of the construction elements and mag placement. Although more work than anticipated , I was pleased with the finished design and how well the concealed mags did there job. Most importantly, my Daughter was all smiles so the effort was well worth it in the end !
Thanks for taking the time to stop in and as always , comments welcomed, good or bad …......ROB
