Small knife block

Small knife block

We are currently in lockdown, to relieve the boredom, I made these small knife block stands, a single one and a double one, I had some cedar wood offcuts, from a window that I have built recently.

Re: Small knife block

That's an interesting router table!

Been thinking of a single block but the 60mm x 190mm blade has put me off a bit given the end user is verticly challanged and likes minimalistic things. I have a couple of pine offcuts that I can play with.

Re: Small knife block

Hello @JoeAzza

 

Thank you so much for sharing the build photos. This is the perfect knife block, you have two of the most commonly used knives in the kitchen. I've always wondered how they made those slots for the knives. You could actually have this in a straight row allowing you to line up more knives. Please keep us updated, we look forward to seeing your next creation.

 

Again, thank you so much for sharing.

 

Eric

Hi @JoeAzza 

This looks great.. Simple, but great...

Based on one of my own recent posts - I'm really interested to know what product you used to finish the timber (and also the finish on the timber table in your photos).

 

Thanks

Re: Small knife block

Hi .@jaga 

Thank you for your enquiry, for the knife block (Cedar wood), I used Danish oil then when dry, I used a homemade mixer of bee's wax and coconut oil.

The work bench I painted three coats of water based satin clear. Available from Bunnings.
