    The basic design, dimensions, and idea was mine, but the cover needed to be changed.

I also let him choose the wood with my only request that it look simple and classy with not too much bling.

    Very neat idea Karring. Elegant, and efficient way to travel for minor cutting sessions. Would definitely make a favorable impression at a dinner party, or what have you.

    I've actually had a bit of a revelation in the last day or so on this box. My bench hone with magnetic pad fits perfectly inside it and allows for a 'double decker' knife box where I can store two layers of knives. See photo below. So I think now I am going to have Tom (the woodworker) make some planks with embedded magnets to-fit, and attach some very low-profile rubber feet to give clearance over the knife below. I figure that with the height I could stack knives in three levels, which means I can take 3-6 knives depending upon size of knives I want to take.

    Also, my wife was picking up the house and she says to me: "Your fancy box looks nice in the center of our table." So for right now my bench hones, diamond spray, rock hard felt, extra corks etc. are all boxed up on the dining room table. Not a bad development I guess.

    Ooo that turned out really well Karring.
    I really love the vintage one that Chuckles found too. I've never seen anything like either of them.
