My mom has a magnetic strip for her knives. And I envied it until I got my own! Well, until I realized it didn't fit on my cabinet.
I figured it would fit if I cut a chunk of the cabinet out. A genius idea really. An idea that has home improvement enthusiasts shouting from the roof tops. Never mind what they are shouting about...
Well, that didn't really go as planned but I learned an important lesson: A Dremel can fill your kitchen with smoke. I added extra wood to the left side of the magnetic strip so it would sit even over the offending cabinet lip.
And it worked! Yay for more counter space.
