Storing kitchen knives is a perpetual problem.Some people buy them one by one, and when not in use, the knives jangle inside a drawer getting dull and nicked.Other people store an enormous set of nine or ten kitchen knives, six steak knives, scissors, and a sharpening steel in a huge angled knife block on the countertop.
The angled block takes up valuable countertop real-estate even though only six or seven knives are regularly used.I am sure you know people like this (maybe you're even one of them!) My upright design takes up less countertop space and shows off the natural beauty of dark walnut wood.
The design is really simple: four vertical boards separated by ten strategically placed dividers.The dividers are shorter than the verticals so there is room to facilitate evaporation in case a knife is inserted wet after washing.
It would be easy to make three or four of these in an afternoon, reserving an additional afternoon for finishing.My design divides the block up to store seven knives; the big knife slots are about 1-7/8″ wide, which are perfect for chef's knives, and the smaller slots are 1-1/8″ wide for paring and peeling knives.
