I love the idea, but I agree you do need to add to your materials list.:
1 - The drill
2 - the type & size of drill bit
3 - the type of sealant or glue to keep the magnets in place

I love the idea but I do have some issues with the design.
first of all, the drill is needed for the construction of this design. Secondly, I think you need to expand the hole in which the knife will go because a knife from farberware wil hardly fit in there. If you want more information on farberware knives and perhaps a review on them, you can reach out.
Wish you luck !

Since the knives do not go into a hole, the farberware knives should hang on this knife holder as well as any other knife. My only comment about this idea is that you must make sure that there is enough space between when you hang them so that you are not knocking others off when you take one off to use. That was the only issue that I found with a magnetic holder. Also, it should be where no small child could access it. My son at 2 years old, managed to use the kitchen drawers for a ladder, the shelves on the upper cabinets as a ladder just to reach a valentine box that He had forgotten that we had eaten all of the candy from. He was pretty shocked when he looked up as he stood on the counter, opening the box only to discover that it was empty & Mom had caught him in the act. How I wish I had had a camera in hand! So I KNOW at least for him, this kind of knife holder would not be out of his reach no matter where I hung it. Glad he is grown & has grandkids now!
How did you cover (or what did u use) to the individual magnets to prevent them from "jumping" up from their holes to the neighboring magnets?
You say you "added" magnets, but I missed HOW. Glue? What kind? If just inserted in the holes, won't they eventually pop out?
What brand of kitchen knivesare those?
