Holding an Edge (Knife Display Case)

Comments (0)

This beautiful scrapwood box is the perfect display case for a handmade knife.

The July issue of Woodcraft Magazine included an article on making a wooden-handled hunting knife from a kit. This month you can make a box to keep it in, which will challenge you in entirely different ways. For many, nothing beats a well-crafted knife; on the other hand, some people admire nothing more than a beautiful wooden box. Being able to make both should impress anyone!

I made two boxes using interesting pieces of wood: a solid chunk of spalted maple (the focus of this project), and offcuts of redwood burl from a friend’s sculpture. I hope they will inspire you to search through your (or your friend’s) scrap pile for  exotic or highly figured piece of wood in just the right size.
