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.

    1. I buy them at Lee Valley (woodworking, gardening store in Ottawa). I’ve ordered online before, and it’s slightly cheaper, but the service is great and it’s convenient to pick up precisely what I need.
