« Part 1: Planning and Milling Part 2 of Multi-Knife Display series Part 3: Finished and delivered! (thoughts on $?) »

Its been a while since I’ve updated on this project, but its time to wrap it up so that I can move on to other things..

I’m at a bit of a cross roads, though, and need some input. Should keep the angle that the center of the display sits the same as the rest of the display, or should I make it a lower angle? See the pics below for what I mean:


Same angle


Same angle with the walnut inserts


Lower angle


Lower angle with the walnut inserts

Let me know what you think!

I know nothing of these displays, but I will say the material choice and construction in this one look awesome!

Thanks. The flash from my phone messed with the colors of the spalted maple a bit. Did you have an opinion on the lower angle vs keeping the angle the same?

I like the lower angle. More contrast, more visual interest in the actual piece that balances with the material.
