        WOW what a beast...looks really nice Mike. Since you said you cut the holes with the scrollsaw, my guess is that you made a box and on one end you made it into a face plate with the holes...is this correct? Which ever way you made it, it looks great!

              Shazam! That is absolutenly gorgeous. Your joinery is amazing. If I needed a knife block you would be my first choice.
              Just great.

                    Thanks for the comments everyone.
                    To Larry-- you are correct in your guess as to how the slots were made. The front where the slots are is 3/4" stock and the filler pieces inside the block are added and line up with the face slots. Lots of behind the scene work for sure. This is a prototype for the client that has expressed interest in having me create blocks for a cutlery store.

                          Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                          Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                          My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                          I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
