Cool Hunting

You've seen it, right? The unbelievably slick Schaschlik knife block I've been eyeing for months? Surely I'm not the only one.

In fact, I'm definitely not the only one. Fellow DIY crafter Chris Diclerico craved the same design, yet rather than shelling out $110 for the original, Chris got to work and created his own Schaschlik hack. And after checking out the Flickr photos of his creation, I'm loving Chris' design almost as much as the original.

If you're comfortable working with a table saw, you absolutely should try this! You'll need a few wood planks (Chris used 3' laminated pine shelves from Home Depot), wood glue, finishing nails, an orbital sander, water-based varnish, and a whole slew of bamboo skewers (Chris used 2,300!) for holding the knives in place. Make sure you find skewers that are long enough for at least the length of the blade of your longest knife.

Happy crafting!
