Now THIS is a Knife---Block

Hi everyone
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!!!

Beautiful, but who the heck needs that many kitchen knives?

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Actually, in my house, we need a knife block like that. My wife likes the serrated blades, and I love the straight. It funny, though, that after I sharpen my blades, that I can't seem to find a clean one.

Very nice job on this knife block. You have given me some inspiration to make one for my kitchen.

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

Thanks everyone for the comments.
I do have to give credit to the client for such a unique design and giving plenty of details concerning the knife layout and dimensions that I used, although when I did the scale drawing it would have been almost 20" wide using his measurements. Had to scale it down just a little.

To Jim West Pa-- The long slot is for a sharpening stone and the 3 holes are for spice bottles.
