Jon was selling a few of these a while ago, but the biggest only held 6 knives :(

I just finished making this one to hold 10 :) It's already 2 feet tall so I had to stop there really need another couple of feet, but that would make it floor standing.

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this first attempt :wink:

Cheers,

J

Just knives :biggrin:

It's really not that big - only 24cm wide and 60cm tall. Just right :)

It's all in oak (dowels too, though I nearly used chop sticks:) - I assume it's local, so probably Tasmanian oak.

Only the "good" knives mounted. A couple of spaces for new additions (one is on the way already )

Cheers,

You did a beautiful job, I wish I had you talent, I have been wanting something like this for a long while. I did get two smaller but I think it's just to much in my kitchen, anyway just a beautiful job.

Looks really good and displays the knives really well, bit too easy for the mrs to get to them like that for me though:biggrin:

:O gee, Fran. Thanks for the compliment. It's really a pretty basic design. Surely someone local could make one?

Very nice work. I like how the rack looks, but also how it shows off the knives so well.

Thanks Neal :). Kato is still yet to be used in anger, as I work on my sharpening skills :O

Meanwhile, a little amateur woodwork is a nice outlet for those creative tendencies :doublethumbsup:
