Magnetic Knife Block18

Unlike a conventional knife block, this weekend project stores the knives on the outside — where you can easily see them. It uses concealed rare-earth magnets to hold the knives in place.

Auxiliary Router Bases24

This trio of shop-built auxiliary router bases will expand the capabilities of your hand-held router. You can build one or all three, depending on the type of work you do.

Without any visible wall fasteners, these shelves seem to be magically suspended from the wall. The design allows you to customize the layout to suit your wall space for a unique look.

Whether you need to assemble a project or just hold a piece firmly in place while working on it, this mobile clamping station fills the bill. It’s a must-have for any shop.

Barn-Door Cabinet44

The rolling barn doors and distressed, rustic finish give this project a country feel. But the ample storage space will be a welcome addition to any home.
