We have a nice collection of knives, right to left:
- CCK Small Cleaver
- LL Bean Carbon Steel Chef Knife
- Wusthof Chef Knife
- 12″ Lasting Cut Slicer
- Scanpan Scalloped Bread Knife
- Scanpan Carving Knife
- 8″ Flexible Boner
- Scanpan Utility Knife
- 4 Paring Knives
- Honing Steel (cropped out accidentally)
The Scanpan knife set came with it’s own knife block but it wouldn’t include some additional knives. I started the job by measuring and drawing each knife and then drawing the block itself.
This project’s materials come from my bountiful maple milling project of 2018.
I took some maple scraps and cut them into roughly 8 pieces, measuring 6″x13″x1″. Then, I had a choice of routing the slots with a router bit or a dado blade. I decided on the dado blade and it worked fine, using several passes, until complete. Then I glued the pieces together. For the internal pieces, I nailed them together and then sandwiched the outside with the cleanest pieces and no nails. Sanded to 180 grit and finished with boiled linseed oil.
