A quick Knife block

Editor's Choice - Oct 21, 2014

Ever since we re-did the kitchen in this house I’ve been looking for a place for the cooking knives. Today I made this while waiting for the glue to dry on the medicine cabinet I’m making. I’d like to take credit for the clever use of space in the cabinet but I saw a similar idea on another website.

4mm MDF front and back cut out on the bandsaw, thin scrap ash spacers and a quick spray of rattle can black paint. Really it was all scraps so essentially free.

Out of the way but right next to the food prep station.

Woods: ash mdf

Tools: bandsaw

Nice work on this and a really great way to keep the knives out of sight and out of the way.

I like it. The only problem I’d have are the tiny hands that like to go into cabinets they shouldn’t be in. They keep breaking the child locks! ERR!

The blades are completely enclosed but yeah, kids make it dangerous. I have a child free environment but you could always use an upper cabinet.

That’s a nice solution to a common problem.
