    I prefer a uniform appearance personally.

This is a time consuming step and requires that any shellac be removed from areas to be glued. Glue will not stick to shellac. I'm glad someone will be making knife blocks. This will take some of the email questions from me and I will then know where to send the inquiries.
    Making traditional knife blocks is on a back burner, but realistically speaking, might never materialize, as these are time consuming and should probably be made to order.

    What I have in mind should be better categorized as knife stands with embedded magnets and wall mount magnetic strips. Both are "open platform", so they can accommodate many types of knives and in terms of time and labor involved, both types are manageable and I can make a limited number of them parallel to making knives.

    I like the idea of contrasting wood. It pops the piece out and will make it look more artistic.

    I will make a prototype in each, starting with a mono color.

    A nice dark wood of some sort (maybe walnut to match your strop bases) would be my first choice.

    How about some classy bling?? In the form of a recessed fine nickel line "spacer" across the width..! ?
