    Now THIS is a Knife---Block

    Hi everyone
    Been a while since I've had anything to post but thought you all might like to see one of the things I've been working on.
    This is my newest commissioned project . The client sent some sketches of what he wanted along with the dimensions of all of the knives and an idea of the kinds of woods to use. This monster is 14” wide x 13 ” deep and 12” tall and weighs 31 lbs. Made from Bloodwood, Cherry, Maple, Ebony, Jatoba and Walnut and finished with 5 coats of wipe-on satin poly. All of the slots for the knives were done with a scrollsaw using a #5 skip tooth blade in 3/4" stock. Fun project!!!

    As always Mike, great work. That is one kitchen I would not want to be in, when a knife fight broke out.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    A Crocodile Dundee knife block. That's not a knife block mate....this is a knife block.

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Shame on you Ken.

    That is the most beautiful knife block that I have ever seen! That should win some kind of an award.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    I second "That is the most beautiful knife block that I have ever seen". I hope it isn't Ginsu's going into it.
