    I don't think he's making knife blocks anymore. He turned me away last year.

    Dave....please confirm or deny. That would save potential customers from having to play a guessing game.

    The web site contact page wasn't working so I didn't receive any contacts for about 30 days or so. It is fixed now. My email and internet service has been problematic since I picked up a virus on a woodworking site in December. I hope that has been fixed now.

    PM sent to the OP.

    So, are you doing knife blocks or not?

    In a word, no. I sent two to UPS today and I do have one to finish as I have time but I don't plan on making any more. There are a variety of reasons but the biggest is the time required to make a knife block. I can only work on one at a time because the parts aren't interchangable and I have to drop everything else in the shop to work on them. Rather than dilute the cutting board efforts and take away from what is my bread and butter, I decided to let the knife blocks go and concentrate on what I believe I can do best.

    Dang I feel really dumb for not getting one when you were making them. Really are the finest I've seen. Boardsmith rules.

    Makes sense to me. Sorry I missed my chance to own one.

    A lot of us have the same requirements in a knife block, mainly, plenty of slots for gyutos and sujis in the 240mm+ size. Most commercial blocks have way too many small slots for crap we dont own/use, and not enough big slots or slots that arent big enough period. Maybe we could come up with a generic design that works for most people's specifications and Dave could do a "group buy" of a set amount (5-10?) of the same design. That way the parts are interchangeable and a bunch of them could be worked on at once.

    Note: I have not discussed this with David, it was just something that popped into my head while reading this.
