      Re: Cabinet for a knife collection

      Seems like an awful lot of drawer slides for the light load that knives have. Is this your model/inspiration or did you already build this? If it is just the model I would suggest not using all those drawer slides and instead just make wood slides. Also don't most knife storage units want to display the knives? Maybe have an acrylic window on each door and a clear top for knife display. I also might suggest a large locking opening front single or double door (like a kitchen cabinet) with the individual drawers behind for added security.

        A little bit too late, I am up to this into the construction, the cabinet is for me and my private collection and as far as security, I live alone, but I thank you just the same for your input.

          Nice work Jacques. You certainly have a lot of knives. Please post a picture when you are finished and the knives are in their drawers.

            Will do, right now I have only about 30 knifes, but I am getting them from my son's father in law, he has a very lage collection ( close to 500 or maybe more) and slowy he is getting rid of them, he has two daughters and they are not interrested in the knifes. He just gave me during Xmas a very nice rifle 22 dated 1907.

              Hey, Jacques,

              Cool cabinet you're working on! Have you considered also adding a top of cherry to go along with the cherry drawer fronts?

              Please let us know how this all turns out, as it's already looking nice. Thanks for sharing with us!!
              All the best,

                Hi Jacques,

                I was wondering if you were aware that you can do a ganglock system with those side mount slides?

                By having a shallow dado that houses a sliding bar, a single lock on the side can lock all the drawers at once.

                  The top is already made out of Oak, and yes I could always add a cherry top, will see how everything looks when done.

                    Nope, did not know about that, Rory, would you have a picture of of this locking devise, might be a good idea.

                      Kind of a little off-topic but I have been trying to find any info about the below knife given to me around 20 years ago. Any insight?

                          Check out page 4 in this brochure. These are the lock systems we use, they are available from Hafele or Richelieu.

                          There is basically a shallow dado on the inside of one gable which houses a sliding flat bar that a lock can lift up and down.
                          On the bar are adjustable pins that engage the drawers by a screw-on stop.

                            Thank Rory, I will keep this in mind for the next one, I guess for this one it is too late and don't want to take all the drawers sliders off and start again.
