Knife Holder Using Bamboo Skewers

contest winner icon

Such a perfectly simple way to build a cheap knife-rack and you can size it to fit anywhere on any counter top.Plan the size you wish. You can have the lumber pieces sawed to size at Lowe's or Home Depot cheaply. Consider the length of the skewers in your plan when determining height then buy enough of them to fill up the 'box'. Any knife you own can be inserted in it so easily. Never a worry about blades getting dull. I'd say it's pretty much a perfect design.

Tomatohanger, you rock! What a great idea! I admired a knife block in a catalog (or maybe online) that was the same idea but used thin wires, I believe, where you used skewers; the thing was around $100 or more. I bought bamboo skewers recently for $2 per 100 & I bet they can be found even cheaper than that. Now I know I can have a knife block like the one I saw, for just a few bucks. Good thinking! Thanks for sharing your idea.
