I bought the wood (Tasmanian Oak from Bunnings), measured it, cut it, nailed it (haha), stained it and screwed feet to it. I haven't made something tangible in a very long time. I can't believe it actually came together. Those are kabab sticks holding the knives, and there is 2400 of them. Given, it's the most expensive knife holder I have ever had (I think it would have cost roughly $60-$70 to make) but I made it and it's mine.
So straight and solid you could set your watch to it. This must be what a builder feels like.
