I have been looking over workaround to store my kitchen knives that would free up counter space and protect the knives’ sharp edges from getting nicked and dulled.Counter space is a precious thing for those who cook frequently and have small kitchens and also for those who hate messy kitchen counter.So here is a simple DIY project for freeing up kitchen counter.
A wall-mounted magnetic strip is the best way to store and organize kitchen knives, scissors,chisels, carving tools, and other sharp objects. It not only protects the sharpness of the tools and maintains their fine edges, but it keeps your hands safe while you’re storing the tools, and out of the way when you’re not using them.
This is an easy diy project. And a fun activity for weekend. Lets start making one our self.
TRY IT OUT:
For this project you need magnets,cardboard roll, X-acto blade, craft paper, glue and ribbon.
For this diy try to grab a thick cardboard roll.
Make marks in the roll using the marker equal to the size of the magnet.
Using the X-acto blade make cuts into the roll.
Follow the same process and make similar holes. Once holes have been cut its time to glue magnets to the holes. Its ok if magnets remains above the surface.
Use some color.
After coloring let the roll aside to dry.Use a craft paper to cover the roll. Just use a bright colored ribbon to hang the roll at your favorite place.
This magnetic holder for your knives will free up your counter and your kitchen drawers. Instead of having a bulky wood block to hold your knives, this DIY magnet project allows you to keep your knives out of the way. This project is also useful when trying to keep dangerous objects out of the reach of children.
Even if you don’t spend time in your kitchen, you can use magnets to create formidable wall art while storing your kitchen utensils.
