How do you cut a slot on a knife block?
To cut out a slot in the PAR pine blocks you can use a router and cutting bit, or a Dremel Trio, or use a sharp wood chisel to make a slot. Each slot should be about 3 to 4mm deep – or deeper than this if you knife is thicker. You can adjust the depth of the slot to fit any size of knife.
What can I use instead of a knife block?
A low-profile alternative to the in-drawer block is an in-drawer mat. It’s a little less expensive and much lighter. If it gets dirty, simply hand wash it in warm soapy water.
What is the wooden knife holder called?
Knife blocks, or knife holders as they are also known, are typically made of a hardwood, such as maple, cherry or oak and contain numerous small slots to “sheath” and protect the knife from damage to the blades.
How many magnets do you need for a knife holder?
Normally, one magnet per knife is sufficient. With heavy knives (more than 100 g) you should use 2 magnets per knife, just to be on the safe side. It’s best for you to do your own fine-tuning.
How do you cut a rectangular slot in wood?
If you want to cut an open slot in wood, you might find that a jigsaw does the trick. Start by drilling two holes at each end of the desired slot. You’ll need to make sure that at least one hole is large enough to accommodate the jigsaw blade. Cut the slot, working carefully and moving slowly.
