One of my friends took a look at the blog and asked what the wood box under the cabinets by the mixer was. That's a neat, cabinet mounted knife block!
I had a traditional block for my knives, but it was pretty bulky. With such limited space, I decided to look for alternative ways to store my knives. I looked at magnetic strips, but I was a little worried about exposed blades. I liked the blocks that fit inside drawers, but I didn't have any drawer space to spare. We have some great kitchen supplies in town, but I wound up having to go to Sur la Table to find this cabinet mounted block.
Pretty neat, huh?
