Project Information

Well I won't go into detail as to the inspiration for this little ditty. I will say it was terribly therapeutic and my first attempt at a knife block. Purple heart was the only choice for this and it was a pleasure to work with. The dowels are hand made and the angle is perfect such that you must hold the knife "Norman Bates" style to stick it in the block. The skewers are stained and the method of stacking was not too difficult to figure out.

I feel your pain!!!!! Neat project. Is this your design? I am curious about the skewer spacing in the field of the piece. You must have laid it out and drilled holes for the skewers, right? Woodworking was good therapy for me when I was "recovering".

Seeing as how the color pattern changes, I'm guessing the bamboo skewers are just dropped in. Looks like every time you remove and replace a knife, the skewers move around a bit. Is that correct?

Very nice job on what turned out to be a good looking project.

P.S. As for your "inspiration", I've always found turning clays to powder via skeet, trap or sporting clays most therapeutic.

Well, it's not any of my business as to the details of your inspiration but I will say that it turned out very nicely. Congratulations.

Great piece! I wonder if you may have picked purpleheart as a symbol of a bruised heart. Just a thought. I know mine was.
