Home Improvement
« on: December 11, 2019, 08:47:17 pm »
I hate knife blocks. They don't have the slots you need, and they're designed for collections of matching knives. Plus, they take up counter space. Drawers are worse. Even with organizers, knives still get dinged up. So, here's my solution. I turned our narrowest kitchen drawer into a knife drawer. In the first pic, I have only glued cork in the bottom. Then, I put cork on all the sides and added a handle rest. Finally, I put in my most-used knives: A serrated bread knife, a honing steel, a paring knife, a chef's knife, and a Santoku, along with removable cork dividers. The whole project cost under $10 and took about an hour. I'm rather pleased.  8)

How deep is this drawer?

I have two that look to be as narrow as yours, they are 11.5 inches deep.

Thanks Roper. My two are much deeper than yours, So perhaps putting my knives in vertically would work better.
