DIY Wall Mounted Wood Knife Rack to Save Space in a Small Kitchen

30 Minutes
Easy

What happens when I clean up from a project? I get inspiration for another project, of course! I was putting away some scrap wood and edging I didn't need anymore and I got this idea for a knife rack that's a hybrid between a knife block and a magnetic knife strip. It took only 30 minutes to make, cost less than $10 and I didn't use any power tools!

I wish I would have done this sooner - I was able to free up precious drawer space and now my knives are organized and within easy reach. I rested mine on the counter but you could also mount it on the back of a cabinet door.

I used pre-glued iron-on birch edging to create the slots for the knives

I used advanced strength double-sided sheets (Glue Dots) to attach the lattice to speed things up but you could also use wood glue and clamps.
