I was asked to make a kitchen knife for a customer. The request came with specific wood. This wood is from a barn that is being redone. The new owners are saving the barn but had parts taken down to replace. So with that in mind I made up a 8 inch kitchen knife and then a butcher block for it. The block has a original wood pin from the beam still in it as a design element. IT was a pleasure to take this one on and the new owner is very happy.
Did you split the block and carve the slot or drill it out?
Good lookin job
I opted to split this one and then used the table saw to make the groove and then glued them together. Used a wood jointer so they were flat after the split. They matched up real nice. With the blade at 8 inch I wasn't comfy drilling it out just too long in my opinion.
