    Jon was selling a few of these a while ago, but the biggest only held 6 knives :(

    I just finished making this one to hold 10 :) It's already 2 feet tall so I had to stop there … really need another couple of feet, but that would make it floor standing.

    Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this first attempt :wink:

    Cheers,

    J

    Just knives :biggrin:

    It's really not that big - only 24cm wide and 60cm tall. Just right :)

    It's all in oak (dowels too, though I nearly used chop sticks:) - I assume it's local, so probably Tasmanian oak.

    Only the "good" knives mounted. A couple of spaces for new additions (one is on the way already … )

    Cheers,

    You did a beautiful job, I wish I had you talent, I have been wanting something like this for a long while. I did get two smaller but I think it's just to much in my kitchen, anyway just a beautiful job.

    :O gee, Fran. Thanks for the compliment. It's really a pretty basic design. Surely someone local could make one?

    Very nice work. I like how the rack looks, but also how it shows off the knives so well.

    Thanks Neal :). Kato is still yet to be used in anger, as I work on my sharpening skills :O

    Meanwhile, a little amateur woodwork is a nice outlet for those creative tendencies :doublethumbsup:

    Reviving a five year old thread...

    Thanks to @Mute-on for the initial inspiration and answering many questions as I plodded on. Thanks also to @Kippington for starting off the project with sawing and drilling. Although Justin created his in a single afternoon, I took >2 months. Not the actual labour, just overthinking everything. Hopefully, my second one will be a walk in the park. :)

    Looks just like mine, but made, you know, properly.

    Nice job Marek!

    Thanks Justin. But it's far from properly made. However I've learnt a lot and hope to do a better job next time. Already thinking... :rolleyes:
