As you may have seen here, I put together a little magnetic knife strip. I have always liked the idea of a knife strip like this one, but never wanted one out in the open in my cluttered kitchen. Then, it dawned on me to put it inside of my cabinet door. Unfortunately, the ones sold at stores are at least 12″ long, and that just won’t fit. Wanting one as soon as possible and not having any tools to make one like this, I made a trip to home depot and came up with this easy solution.
- A stainless steel ruler, mine was 6 inches.
- Some magnets. I used all-purpose ones but it may be better to use heavy duty magnets.
- Industrial Strength Velcro
- Strong glue (I used Gorilla Glue)
I am considering covering the magnets up with another ruler to make it look a bit more seamless but it works for now. This was mainly just a quick 10 minute fix that has much more room for improvement. I will keep you posted if I do end up changing anything.
