Kitchen storage solutions by J.K. Adams make it easy to save on valuable kitchen space while enjoying the best of USA-made craftsmanship. The family-owned company provides everything from pot hooks and spice bottles to wooden spice carousels, kitchen-knife blocks, bread boxes, wine racks, pot racks, and more. J.K. Adams' wooden kitchen items feature renewable and sustainable wood in Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, or Hickory varieties. A thoughtful choice for gift giving, the high-quality kitchen items provide sleek designs and convenient functionality for year after year of everyday convenience.
Innovative Kitchen-Storage Solutions
In the late-1970's, when the gourmet-chef-tools market in the U.S. was still in its infancy, J.K. Adams owner Malcolm Cooper, Sr. conceived of the first slanted knife block. His goal was to create a cutlery organizer that would hold knives at a low enough angle that they could be easily removed from the block when it was pushed back under a cabinet overhang. The J.K. Adams Kangaroo knife block was launched in 1980--the first-ever slanted knife block, and still the best.
Recognizing the many opportunities to improve kitchen storage, J.K. Adams introduced the revolving "carousel" spice rack in 1982 followed by countless other well-designed storage products in the years since, including the popular in-drawer knife tray in 1994, a space-saving alternative to the knife block that offers the same safety and blade protection.
In 2011, J.K. Adams takes cutlery storage to a new level once again with the new Universal knife block. For over 30 years, J.K. Adams has continued to lead and inspire the kitchen storage market with their innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and exemplary craftsmanship.
J.K. Adams: Over 65 Years of New England Yankee Craftsmanship
Some of the world's finest woodworkers can be found in New England. The rich heritage and folklore of the great Yankee Woodworker is as well known today as it was hundreds of years ago, and the craft has been handed down through the generations. J.K. Adams' success is certainly attributable to the early Vermonters employed by the company while in its infancy who brought forth the techniques and quality craftsmanship that could only come from generations of shared knowledge and experience.
The J.K. Adams factory has been at the same location since the beginning. As many as three generations of families have relied on J.K. Adams to provide for their families. Located in a rural area of Vermont, J.K. Adams remains one of the largest employers in the area and is an important pillar of support for the local community.
J.K. Adams has always used the creativity and skill of their workforce in developing new products, and today J.K. Adams continues its New England craftsmanship with a wide variety of cutting boards, as well as wooden salad bowls, kitchen islands, and slate serving trays. And at the J.K. Adams factory, you'll find future generations of woodworkers building upon the traditions begun over 65 years ago.
Cutting boards and other products by J.K Adams are made in the North America.
About J.K. Adams' Logo
In colonial New England, three strokes of a broad ax were used to mark the finest trees in the forest for the Queens' Navy shipmasts. The broad arrow was adopted as our logo because it symbolizes the exceptional quality of wood that goes into our products.

Why Choose a Wood Cutting Board?
Wood is naturally anti-bacterial, and any bacteria left on the board will actually lessen in time versus multiplying on a plastic cutting board. A wooden board will also be more gentle on your knife's edge, and it just feels and sounds better under a knife.
Caring for Your J.K. Adams Cutting Board
Wash by hand in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly, and oil frequently with mineral oil to help give it an optimal appearance. Do not soak, microwave, freeze, or put in the dishwasher. For removing stains, you can use a weak bleach-and-water solution or a combination of lemon juice and salt. Be sure to rinse and wipe with mineral oil afterward. Additionally, the surface can be sanded to make the board look like new--although a board with wear will add character to your kitchen. For storage, keep the board away from strong sunlight as avoiding UV rays will reduce the risk of fading.

Using a hammer, I assembled two '12 bottle' sets together in this manner, without wood glue or additional fastening, and it sits solidly on my bar, and looks much better in my view.
There are slight downsides though -- you do lose about one bottle capacity assembled this way -- e.g., I can rack 22 bottles vs. 24 had I used the square configuration (this is true because rack sits on a series of trianges must be subtracted from total capacity)
The second downside is that the bottle does not sit firmly cradled between the flat spots of two thick dowels, as it does in the square configuration. Assembled with a diamond opening, it sits on the flat spot of one dowel only, and the bottle either rolls slightly to the left or right, but is still firmly enclosed in its space. No risk of the bottle slipping out or through, it is purely an aesthetic objection, and hardly noticeable. (and I am really picky about such things)
If I have time, I will take a picture and post for others to see. This
Here are a couple of tips that I learned the hard way for assembling this product.
1. Do not use a rubber mallet you purchase at a dollar store. Use a wood or plastic mallet instead. A rubber mallet just doesn't cut it and leaves rubber marks on the piece.
2. Do not put together on a padded rug, work on a sturdy surface. A solid surface is needed to hit the pegs into the thick pieces without the piece bouncing.
3. Use wood glue sparingly, don't let it drip all over the piece.
4. Work in factors of 2. Put 2 pieces together. Put 2 pieces of 2 together. Put 2 pieces of 4 together etc. . . Otherwise you will have to sneak side connecting pieces in between a mating side.
5. Do not decide to put this together with a baby sleeping nearby. You will have to apologize and stop to take care of the baby. Remember you woke it, you have to put it back to sleep.
Update in 2014: Still loving the rack in a new house. I broke it down into multiple pieces and have wine racks in cabinets in the kitchen and one on top of the counter for the bottles that are open. I am recommending this to my brother because he has olive oil bottles that are the same size as wine bottles. He has a gap in between two cabinets in his kitchen, and I thought he could stack one vertical rack in between the cabinets for storage and easy access while he is cooking. My sister had space in between her fridge and cabinet and created wine storage there. Very, very versatile. It is only limited by your imagination. I highly recommend this rack.
The instructions for assembly indicate that each peg should provide a "friction fit" during assembly, and that if any peg doesn't provide such a fit, to discard it and use another, since enough extras are provided to allow for some defective pegs. I discovered that about one in three or one in four of the pegs could provide a friction fit (not a tight friction fit, but just a friction fit). The remaining pegs turn loosely in the holes, and fall out if the "octobar" into which it is driven (yes, with a hammer) is upended. After a while, I began suspecting that maybe it wasn't just the pegs, but perhaps some of the holes were overlarge. So I started hunting through multiple holes looking for a tight fit, and rotating the bars to try to locate the wider holes towards the outside of the rack, where they wouldn't be used. Still, some pegs were so small that they wouldn't provide a friction fit in any hole, and some holes were so large that no peg could satisfy them.
All told, I was able to assemble slightly more than half of the octobars into two rows of openings, capable of holding some 20 bottles of wine. The box still contains a good number of octobars and a surprisingly high number of rejected pegs.
The instructions indicate, and I quote, that "Glue is usually unnecessary on J.K. Adams wine racks. Our pins are slightly oversized to produce a friction fit which is generally sufficient to insure a tight rack. In a dry environment, however, some wood joints may loosen. If this occurs, add a spot of glue.Read more ›
