Back story to begin with. This past Christmas I gave my Daughter a set of knives and a custom knife block that I built for her as well as a wine tilt. Well in the melee of gifting out several wine tilts I some how came up short so my daughter graciously gave up her tilt so that I could save face! With the understanding that I would make her a replacement ,I finally set out to finish up this tilt that I am very happy with how it turned out. I took the opportunity to design the tilt to go along with the knife block and used the same materials and added the accented aluminum rivet line to pick up on the knife handles as well. The two piece construction was done with biscuit joinery and then added insurance with the inlay banding that split the glue line and the added benefit of no end grain in the Wenge was welcomed. Well I feel that this finished piece is some of my better work and my Daughter reaffirmed with a big smile and not giving me to much grief over the April delivery! Thanks for looking and comments/ questions always welcomed …......ROB

Rob I just really admire the quality of your work. These are so refined and have a subtle elegance that is just really hard to come by. Beautiful.

Rob that is a really cool job on both the knife holder and the wine tilt . Now if you could get your Daughter to give my daughter lessons on not complaining about the time delay on the project. Mine would be on my case the day after to get it finished. But I guess I will keep her anyway.
