DIY Magnetic Pallet Wood Knife Rack!

103 ratings | 9620 views
Check out how I turned a scrap piece of pallet wood into an awesome, magnetic knife rack. It's easy, so try it yourself! My pallet board was pretty thin (1/2" thick) and narrow, so I just doubled my magnets in 3 drilled holes. But if your board is thicker, you could even triple the magnets, and if it's wider, you could drill 4 holes instead of 3 for more holding power.

Hi, For the magnets, both side doesn't matter like which side you put in N or S?

and the best thing is anytime a kid needs a big sharp knife all they have to do is take it off the board and Chase all their friends with it! SMH.. great ideal but that's about it!

I made this with fresh lumber. I rarely eat out and cook alot. This knife rack functions! Fun to slap the knives on it for some reason. Thanks! Love your channel! It's super cool. :)

That's cool, I think harbour freight or princess auto in Canada sell magnetic strips in different lengths for exactly this application with tool, so plenty strong, and perhaps a bit easier to make as you only have to put a dado into the board with a table saw or router instead of multiple holes. Would also eliminate the risk here of your Forstner bit punching through the board.

I've seen those at a few hardware store, but never thought to sink one behind wood like this. That could be pretty cool!

+Денис Егоров I ended up using 3/4" diameter magnets.

+MrDiyDork hey man I didnt mean to sound rude. I actually like your channel. I was just shocked at 16 mins. anyway heh. :))
MrDiyDork (2 years ago)
+wtf Yeah I know. My wife says the same thing all the time. haha. I'm always surprised at how much video I shoot when I make these tutorials. But my goal from the beginning was to give as much info as possible. I'm not a fan of the 2-3 minute "magazine" article how to's. I want mine to be beefier.

Nice, would have been a great idea for Christmas presents! You could have also used Neodymium Magnets and gotten away with 1 or 2 for the smaller knives and 4 or 5 for the biggest knife ($12 on ebay fir 20 magnets). They are thinner and stronger so you wouldn't have had to get so far though the wood (allows you to use thinner pieces). Also for a kitchen project I would lean towards using a definitely food safe finish like mineral oil or salad bowl finish - though I am probably just paranoid.
MrDiyDork (2 years ago)
+Jason Adamczyk That's a great price. I considered the rare earth magnets, but found these ceramic ones locally and wanted to try them out. The neodymium magnets would hold great though. I probably should have used an oil. I wasn't sure how this pallet was used in its previous life, so I decided to seal it with the lacquer, but I agree, that may have not been the best choice.
