    I have always wondered about some kind of modular design. For example, making single horizontal row elements with 4 slots for gyutos or 6 slots for small knives or one cleaver slot plus two gyuto slots etc, all in the same width, that could be stacked on top of each other. That way one could combine as much as one needs. The individual modules could be made ahead of time and require the same work process, so that this may actually be reasonably efficient. What would be missing is the nice outer frame that Dave puts around his blocks. I wish I had the talent or the time for a drawing, but I think you get the idea. And it would be more a functional solution than a piece of art, unless the modules came in different woods and one could combine them...

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.
    Sounds very interesting.

    Rubbing it in, eh? Well then the least you can do is post some pics when it arrives for the less fortunate (like me).

    I will have to see if I can find my camera and figure out the whole posting pictures thing. I just got one that he had available, trusting I will like what I get.

    It's a 'mid-size' -- not one of the 40+ slot ones.
