        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 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.

                          I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                          Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                          With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
