How To: Build A Rustic Wooden Magnetic Utensil Holder

img_1824

In a small apartment, counter space is at a premium. Knife blocks are huge and often unsightly, so I resolved to make an attractive, convenient solution. Several people commented that they would pay for such a product, so I opened Pretty River Woodworking on Etsy. As a second personal project, I needed a space to store my barbecue utensils. Here’s the Black Walnut barbecue holder.

I started with a rough cut black walnut board. It was harvested locally and special care was taken to preserve the bark for a natural look.
