This knife rack will save you the $15.00 it costs to buy a more traditional magnetic strip style rack. It's super easy to make, looks cool, and will reward you everytime you head to the kitchen to make a nice dice of onion for your salsa verde. ps. I call it the "line-cook" because like me if you're a line cook in this city of abundant wealth (NYC) you're probably making about $10.00/hour and can't afford toilet paper after your rent.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
This is so easy I only included these two steps. First get your supplies:
1) Two peices of birch verneer plywood or like matterial at a thickness of 3/4" ,length of about 18", and width of 3".
2) Two lag bolts that are at least 3 1/2" long and 1/4" diameter with 8 washers that fit onto them.
3) I used a a Japaneese pull saw and a combination suqare to make straight lines and cuts.
4) Before I intalled it I gave it a coat of Tung oil to keep it safe from splashing water, feel free to leave it untreated but some kind of finish will accent the cool endgrain of the plywood.
