    Purchased a hybrid burl/resin piece with the idea of putting some of my balis on it. Then they wouldnt be laying around everywhere.

    Finally finished it and then it was confiscated by my wife. Now it's on kitchen duty.

    But it fits well in the kitchen and I have much bigger (hopefully better) plans for my Bali display.

    That' s really nice. I bought some of the very industrial looking magnetic tool holders that are little more than a U-shaped channel of steel holding a row of bar magnets, intending to shroud them in a very thin veneer of wood, but not got round to it yet - that "to do list" just keeps growing.

    Sweet. Does it come with the magnet or do you router out a slot and glue it in?

    I drilled each one and then just put a layer of silicone over them. It was a learning curve. Need to find a cheaper source for magnets.

    Funny how those ideas that seem cheap, end up not being so cheap.

    Neodium magnets are gosh darn expensive. Might check ebay, China probably has the market cornered on rare earth elements based on the fact that I don't know what I'm talking about.

    First ones I ordered were just not strong enough. Dont want any knives falling off the wall. So they turned into this:

    It looked really cool with the balisongs on it. It's um... well, it's different now. The burl and acrylic looks good.
