With this instructable I'd like to share how to make a snazzy knife block that you can make in twenty minutes or less (not counting the time it takes to eat 42 ounces of oatmeal).
The idea for this design came from a commercial product that used plastic rods. Another instructabler, jliken, has posted a beautifully crafted version which you should check out ( http://www.instructables.com/id/Bamboo-Knife-Block/
). But if quick 'n' dirty is more your style you've come to right place.
This knife block can accommodate any number of knives, depending on the size of the container you choose. It also fits odd sized knives and kitchen scissors with ease. I love the modularity and the ease of construction. For those interested in putting more effort into the appearance of the finished product, check out the last step for other construction ideas.
