    Need a.....

    Anyone make knife blocks? I have the wood, but not the tools or knowledge. The store bought models are nowhere near what my requirements are. Have lumber and some $$ for anyone who might want to take it on.
    Thanks!!

    Router a groove, glue two boards together with grooves in. Glue needed boards until all knives accounted for. Cut built block at an angle for knife handle presentation.

    There's also the box full of bamboo skewers glued to the bottom model.

    That was my approach. You size the grooves for the particular knife or the sharpening steel.
