Thanks for the help with this one. Finished. I got the inspiration from a knife block I saw online. It was listed at 800 pound sterling($1200). I asked myself is it made of gold or is it that hard to make? Well it was a bit onerous during the clamping phase but cutting the wedges was quite easy on the bandsaw and table saw. I originally made them right angle triangles which looked a bit weird. I turned them into isosceles triangles and it did the trick. Walnut and cherry. Finished with blonde shellac followed by wipe on oil base poly and steel wool/wax.

Really great idea and execution. Love the wood combination. Thanks for the pictures they are really helpful to learn your process.

Nice simple, functional design and a good choice of woods to make it special.

Nice variation on the traditional square block concept, and really well executed!
Your clamping solution is apparently very effective.

Great piece. Well executed.

The question of course: "now that you have made one, is the price within reason". ��

Jamie,
I like the design, it takes less room on the counter when they all fit in the same footprint like this I think I might attempt this. Thanks

Dan
