Knife rack under cabinet.

Inconspicuous and handy describes the drop-down knife tray built by Lysle DeLong of Vista, California. Mounted to the underside of a wall-hung kitchen cabinet, the shallow tray pivots on a pair of 2-inch-long 1/4-inch dowels running through eye screws. The removable dowels fit into 1-inch-deep holes centered and drilled into a 1 by 1 at the back of the tray.

DeLong scaled the tray to the size of his 12 steak knives. Glue and brads secure the 1/4-inch plywood bottom to the four sides. He rounded the top outside edge of the 1-by-1 back so it can pivot freely under the cabinet. Small spacers along a center strip position the knives. The tray opens with a pull on two pieces of wood secured to sides with glue and brads.
