  1. you could use the longest (6/5) but preferably (5) and cut 4-1 from that. thats easier in my woodworking experience

  2. Hi Steve, Loved your video. I unfortunately don't have a lot of power tools. Just the usual homeowners batch. Like circular saw, drill/driver, sander, yada, yada, yada.
    My dad made lots of furniture for all of us when he was younger, and helped me to finish rooms in my house ect. while he still lived close by. I get my handy side from him.
    Can you tell me what type of glue you used to put the pieces together?
    I want to make a knife holder to go under a cabinet in my kitchen. I have limited counter space. I've got a picture in my minds eye of what it will look like.
    I do have a dremel, and some attachments for my drill that I could use to cut out the spaces for the knives.
    One other thing, I have a few wood planers, but have never had success using them. I don't know how to adjust them ect. Do you have a video or could you make one so those of us who are new to wood building and the great hand tools used for it could learn types and how to use them them?
    I've done everything from electrical, plumbing, masonry, roofing ,tile work, HVAC, appliance repair, but other than refinishing, and replacing decking, and building a prefab shed, replacing a fence, and repairing rotted wood, I've never built anything from scratch with wood. It's time to do it. Nothing feels better than to see the fruits of my own handiwork.

  3. I would have liked to have seen how you did the routing as I have no idea what you did to get the exact sizing/spacing you needed. 

  4. Is there some reason not to glue up and then cut the  bottom level all at once?  Other then perhaps thickness.   JimE

  5. Another cracker of a video Steve. Looks like Dad will be getting a knife block for his birthday haha. Keep up the good work mate.
