    Another Custom Knifeblock "The Beast"

    Hi Everyone
    Here are a couple of photos of my newest commission.
    This block is 17”wide x 14.5” tall and 14” deep. Made from cherry and tiger maple with ebony accents. Weighs in at 45 lbs. Holds 59 knives, 3 steels and a pair of shears.And yes there was a lot of scrolling involved in cutting out the 60 slots for the blades. Used a #5 skip tooth blade.

    Beautifully done, Mike. I can't tell from the photos, but are you using the Kapoosh black bristle material on the inside?
