I see you got the ultra modern lovers too. Everything here is ultra modern now, weird chairs is a staple.

It always looks clean in the end and is more difficult than people think. I just couldn't imagine trying to keep it clean and functional. Nice work.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Made a knife holder for the kitchen. Will fit into top sink drawer

2 1/2" thick, 16" wide and 19 11/16" long. Made from 18 individual board, each with two grooves cut into them. The middle groove is 5/8" deep and the edge groove is 1 3/8" deep. Boards are just pushed together.





Made a few more cuts to form the layers and and a few 22 1/2 angle cuts. This way you have a layer for larger and smaller knives. The boards are still just pushed together.


Stuck a 7/16" board in the center to form a slot for the sharpening steel.


Made up a jig to do the glue up. I needed the clamps to put pressure just on the lower section of the board. A couple of boards to keep things flat to keep the sanding to a minimum.




Put a few coats of CV on the knife holder, very thinned out, with a rag.

That's cool. I have been trying to figure out a way to safely display/store my kitchen knife collection.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Do you want to be sticking your knives into lacquer? I don't think I've ever seen one that looked like it was sprayed. They all have extremely thin finishes, just enough to protect them. So that's what I did.


Fit nice.


Also put in the under sink pullout. Had to have him get everything in there before I could make it because of the cutouts needed to be done.

Leo, what don't you like about Minwax that you find you get with other brands?

I've always used them or Old Masters, depending on which paint store I'm at that day.
