Get a wooden board in the desired dimensions (for example, 20 cm x 6 cm x 2 cm). This can itself may be cut or cut at the hardware store nearby. Note only the following fact – depending on your wooden cutting board is larger and wider, need more disc magnets.
On the back of the Board mark the exact places where the magnets should be later with the pencil.
With a 25 mm Forstner bits are then drilled the holes for the disc magnets. Ensure that the holes are deep enough, but definitely not much too deep, so that the front of the Board remains intact.
The magnets are then glued with hot gun (or other strong glue). All magnets should be only on the sides and also from top adhesive.
Disc magnets are in the final holes and set cover
The wood is sanded from all sides and edges. For your ease, you can use also a multi Sander.
The Tung oil is applied with a brush and massaged with a coarse sponge into the wood. After 15 minutes, the oil with a cotton cloth of wood is taken.
You can use also wood paint instead of oil
As a last step, the male connector on the wall is screwed. And now you can hang the knife (with the handle upwards).
