For all the people that say they can't.... I say yes you can. Just find someone close to you and ask for help. More than likely they will be honored.

Got a question about this project?

    That's a nice idea but the orginal in the picture is not the same knife block that was done.

      @Debbie and Cindy, It does not matter which way the slots are. Drill the holes wherever you need them. I did several, that block is just the one I picked up for the picture. Good eye though. LOL!

    How did they make the slits go sideways instead of up and down?

    • Debbie Harris

      @Cindy Rein In a perfect world, you would find a block with no holes. Just drill at each end of the slot no matter which way they go. You'll get the same result. Thanks so much for commenting.

      @Barb I work with wood a lot. I say I gather it. My daughter says I hoard it. LOL!. I have made brush blocks out of 4x6 wood before but it's a little more involved. These are just handy for quick projects, so I collect them.
