There you have it...
A bit dark in here, so can't capture the grain well. It looks better in person.
Design allows for easier separation of knives from magnetic strip, while maximizing magnetic hold on the surface. Recessed mounting hardware allows for a flush-mount. Magnets are completely sealed inside.
Overall, I like this design much better over the prototypes I have made before.
WOW, very nice!
Does it come in 18-19"?
Sign me up pls...
This one is 16.75" (16" of magnetic surface). It's all I had on hand for walnut, but I just purchased more, and subsequent ones will be 18" and 24". I won't make them smaller.
You will have to take my word for it - it looks much better in person than on the pics.
Just need to find the right place for one.
The wide chamfers also highlight grain in 3D, so I have some walnut as well as highly figured maple in mind for the next few.
Love it, particularly the chamfer. That really sets the piece off. Nice job Marko.
Wouldn't changing the orientation of the fasteners to vertical make more sense? I'd be worried that the strip might work it's way sideways and fall down.
it shouldn't matter, as it has to be mount flush (working on a solution), either vertical or horizontal mount. I decided to keep this prototype, so I am going to give it a thought once I mount it and see how it works out.
Magnetic strips will be available in the store shortly. A typical lengh will be 18 or 24". If I have a particularly nice piece of wood, I will make it in a different lengh (12-24").
These will be made on ongoing basis, but it is possible that I won't have one ready to ship when order is placed. The wait time is up one week.
Same as with my knives, strips will come with 7 days return policy, as long as they come back in same condition as received.
Lastly, higher price reflects cost of materials, time and labor. These are more complex than Mag-Bloks and the price reflects that.
