Easy to Build Magnetic Knife Holder
Storage is at a premium in our home since we had to downsize. We like to cook and did not have adequate storage for knives so I created a magnetic knife holder using a scrap board and a magnetic bar used for tool organization that mounts on the wall. This keeps the knives off of the counter and safely stored.
I started by measuring the magnetic tool bar and cutting a board at the same length.
I measured the thickness of the magnetic bar and set the blade on my table saw to the same height so I could cut a series of kerfs along the wood to make a channel for the magnetic bar.
I cleaned out the channel by breaking the pieces of remaining wood from cutting the kerfs. I checked the fit of the bar in the channel and it fit perfectly!
I thoroughly sanded the board, then stained and sealed it.
I placed the magnetic bar in the channel, then secured the entire assembly to the wall using auger anchors and screws. The knives are held securely with no danger of slipping.
