        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.

                  That looks great Mike!

                    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.

                      Wow Mike! - I thought that your previous knife block posting was fantastic but with this beast you've really excelled yourself. Simply beautiful!

                          How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                          The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                          I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                          Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                          If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                          Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
