What is this session all about?

Starting from a piece of rough-cut hardwood, strong neodymium magnets, and choosing between different designs, you'll make your own wall mounted magnetic knife rack.

Skills practised:

  • Milling and preparing rough timber

  • Making the most of natural grain

  • Machine and hand planing

  • Accurate marking and following a 3d design

  • Drilling to exact depths

  • Chamfering using a router

  • Chamfering using hand tools

  • How to create a keyhole-slot in the piece to hang it.
