"Do you have some old damaged books lying around? Re-purpose them and make this one of a kind knife block that looks amazing and keeps your knives sharp at the same time. Now's the perfect time to get those knives out of the drawers and display them in a unique way. The knife block is easy to make and doesn't cost a lot. All you need, besides the old books are some skewers and plywood."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a different and very cute. I can just imagine people asking where I got such an unusual knife holder. When I say I made it, I may have to prove it. But it's basically very easy and the directions are very well written. Thank you for sharing such a great idea.

Wow, that's a very creative idea, and it looks great, too! If anyone is interested in this, read through the comments on her page to get some great tips on how to make it easier. The only question I have is about how long it will last. Other than that, it's great!
