Got my knife holders Friday morning, set them up today, and they fit the bill just right--holding even the heavy cleaver with a good solid connection.

David, I have never seen such a beautiful knife holder! The magnets are very strong and safe. Thanks so much for working with me. You're very talented. I wish you much success in the future!
Form following function. Except when form tells function to try and keep up!
My strongest talents have always been in the making of things, most often of my own design. I now draw on my backgrounds in industrial design, graphic design, and special finishes and color work to design and make the things you see here. I worry some that the name I've chosen for my shop might imply that I think I'm some ultimate master of my craft. That's certainly not the case, but I do know enough to know that my pieces are well made, with great attention to detail. I am a compulsive craftsman and take a lot of care with things like the tactile quality of my pieces. And for better or worse, it's always been more important to me to do good work than to make a lot of money.
My magnetic knife holders grew out of a friend's desire for a magnetic holder that would not risk damaging the edges of his beautiful new Shun kitchen knives. My design philosophy typically dictates that the best design solution is the one that allows the implement or fixture or whatever it is, to do its function in a way that "gets out of your way", meaning that it should work well and eliminate hassles, not add to them. If it can do that, and be beautiful in the bargain, that's a win.
And then there are things like my bandsaw boxes, where function is secondary to form. A complete violation of the philosophy I just tried to articulate. What can I say? Whimsy takes its own path, and I just try to follow as best I can!
Owner, Maker, Designer
My experience includes many years of doing color design and fantasy or faux finishes for high-end residential clients. I've also been a professional graphic designer for over a decade. Nowadays I'm mostly making sawdust, working wood in various ways.
I will ship to Canadian customers via First Class US Postal Service, which will NOT be insured. Canadian customers may be liable for customs fees collected by Canadian authorities on delivery to the recipient. I'm still learning how shipping to Canada really works in practice, so I may well need to make adjustments to my Canadian shipping policy. The prices of my items are such that the cost to ship them via an insured method to Canada seems excessive, which is why I've chosen the uninsured method for now. If you'd prefer I insure my shipment to you in Canada, I can accommodate you, but it will add about $12 US to the shipping charge.
Please supply your phone number with all orders. Canadian buyers MUST supply your phone number! US Customs forms require it. For shipments within the US, FedEx would like a phone number as well, to use if there's a problem with delivery.
