Picture of DIY knife rack
I always wanted that cool magnetic knife rack but when I saw prices (at least in Croatia) for those things I said to myself: OK it's time for something way cheaper,recyclable and easy to build - something in the spirit of GEEK design philosophy...And this cool geekster rack is created ;)

Step 1: Tools and materials

Picture of Tools and materials
The great thing about this is that you need minimal tools and material - basically what you can find anywhere around you and recycle.

- saw
- paint brush
- screwdriver

- 2 x wooden L profile slat (plank) 
- 2 x screws
- 2 x thin wooden "spacer" pieces
- some paint
- some wood glue

Step 2: Paint and assembly

Picture of Paint and assembly
1. Cut 2 pieces of L profile plank as long as you want (need) and paint them in color you like. I used water based paints for kids toys so they are maximum safe.

2. Cut and paint the "spacer" - basically I used a small piece of this same L profile plank - this will give you some space between two planks so knife blade can pass trough

3. Glue everything together

4. Mount and screw the rack on to the wall

5. Ad your logo if you are a vain designer like myself :D and that's it!

Hope you like this small DIY project  of mine - this is also my first instructable but there will be many more very soon. Geek on!

@Helkombi - tnx for the support...actually I was searching for a good pan lid rack solution...any ideas? did you manage to find something?
hey i saw you were looking for a pan lid holder, i saw a few in the store, one used pegs and magnets to just hang the lid on and supposing they have a metal ring it will work, the other idea i saw was a couple Of V's made from plastic that you mount on the wall, the V had a little lip that was on the inside of the V that way it would grab the edge of the lid and hold it in place and gravity does the rest, since its a V it will hold almost any size of lid as well, you may want to play around with angles, and sizes but i thought it was cool when i saw it, just not the insane 100$ pricetag

Hi @canida, thank you 4 the input...Yes this is a palette kitchen shelf I made and I plan to put instructable tomorrow...Actually the complete kitchen (or better say the whole apartment) is one big DIY project with big emphasis on geek and recyclables. So far I've done king size bed, kids bed, TV "stand", a bunch of small projects and for the grand finale kitchen is work in progress...
