A Magnetic Knife Rack that hangs on the wall is a fun DIY project that does not cost a lot of money, looks great in your home or kitchen, and is relatively easy to build. My version of the Magnetic Knife Rack has plenty of holding power for even the heaviest of cleavers and knives.

You can buy S4S (surfaced four sides) lumber from your big box or local hardwood supplier and be ahead of the game. Or you can use rough lumber if you have the tools (jointer and planer) to prepare this wood for use.


I use rough lumber and like to leave it at least 3/4″, but preferably 1″, thick to allow plenty of room to seat the 1/2″ thick magnets with space to spare.
