As some of you may know I got a sizable commission for producing some custom knife blocks for a client that will give them as Christmas gifts to their best customers.
When I had originally talked with the client they had wanted to order as many as 40 of these blocks but after discussing their budget we settled on doing 25 which considering the deadline for delivery didn’t hurt my feelings. The blocks are made from Walnut, Maple and Cherry and the style was something that the client had suggested but left it up to me to do the final design . I was given the specs of the knife sizes and dimensions and built a prototype block
In order to keep all of the components consistent I had to make several jigs to help me in this process as you will soon see in action. I have gathered up all of my rough sawn lumber and have made all of the final modifications as per the client. Let the fun begin
