The 125 year old barn finally came down on the family farm in Upper Michigan. I was given some of the wood and decided to make some kitchen knife blocks for all my cousins. The idea is to fill them with bamboo skewers to hold the knives in place. I think it’s a neat way for everyone to have a piece of the old homestead. I was also considering having some of it stabilized to see if I can make handles with it. In my head I'm picturing the texture kind of like antler, but I think I'm probably wrong on that count. We'll see.
