Keep your kitchen knives handy, hang them on a wall and open up some of your counter space. Made from reclaimed oak with a purpleheart accent strip, this will look great in any kitchen to display your fine cutlery. Embedded beneath the surface are twenty 1/2 inch rare earth magnets across the 21 inches of hanging surface.

Somewhere on LJ, someone was trying to figure out how to hang this securely enough to hang knives. I found that keyhole slots with some felt pads behind the block ad enough force and friction to keep it steady and secure.

I love wall magnets for my knives. It keeps them stored in a manner that prevents the blades from being knicked and ready for easy access. It can be a bit scary if the knife is heavy but with proper magnetic strength, this is a great way to keep any metal tool ready to use and not banged around in a drawer.

We have them installed in the woodshop too, great for frequently used drill bits, forstner bits, carving knives, etc.

Good job!
