When you have a small kitchen, storage space is at a premium. I wanted to free up some prime top drawer space occupied by my knives so my solution was to design and make a DIY wood knife rack that’s a hybrid between a knife block and magnetic knife strip. I built it in just 30 minutes for under $10 without any power tools!
1) Pine board: 8″ x 11″ (scrap wood I had on hand)
2) Lattice molding: 1/4″ x 3 ft ($1.50)
3) Birch veneer edging pre-glued iron on ($6.50) or 1/4″x 3/4″ screen molding for $2.
4) Glue Dots advanced strength double-sided sheets or wood glue and clamps
