J.K. Adams: A 2nd-Generation, Family-Owned Company
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.

Thanks, JKA, you made exactly what I wanted.
PS - I was especially pleased to receive a rack with dark metallic grey paint on the wooden rails. The description (and photo) show the natural wood version, and I am unclear on whether the company still makes the dark grey color or has simply changed to a lighter metallic color on their vague "grey" option. Their website is somewhat confusing on color. If I wasn't so pleased, I'd knock a star off for all this - but indeed I got better than I hoped, because I had preferred the idea of the darker grey.
The mounting points for this rack are on 11-1/4" by 32" centers. For those of you who will be mounting the rack across your joists, this should make installation fairly straightforward, easy, and quick, assuming your joists are on standard 16" centers. If, like me, you are mounting the rack running with your joists, things get more challenging. And, when you are also mounting the rack over a counter whose relationship with the joists can only be described as "unfortunate", it gets slightly more complicated.
I solved my problem with two 34" long 3.5" wide oak planks, fastened into three joists, using 3" #12 brass wood screws, countersunk into the oak. The three joists were made necessary because of the relationship of the rack to the counter, and the fact that it was important to keep the rack mounting points between joist attachments to prevent the weight on the rack from being out on a "lever" with the last attachment point acting as a fulcrum. Without the need to line up favorably with the counter, a pair of 18" boards, attached at two joists would have been just fine. I mounted the rack offset, 4" from the back of the counter. I chose this offset to keep the pans out of my face when working at the counter, as I need all available workspace in my galley style kitchen.
Working on the ceiling is always a treat. I transferred the exact location of the back edge of my counter to the ceiling by clamping a board along the counter's curved edge, and using it as a reference rail. The actual transfer was done using a Bosch plumb laser Bosch Self-Leveling Laser Plumb Bob (GPL2) . To find the joists I used Zircon 60276 MultiScanner i700 OneStep Wood, Metal, and Live Wire Stud Sensor, however, there were some "mystery boards" in my ceiling that cast some doubt as to whether I was correctly identifying the joists, and I finally had to resort to using a fiber optic camera Ridgid 31123 SeeSnake Micro 9.5mm Inspection Camera to identify what was what. The "mystery boards" run back among some cabinets, and I'm still not sure why they were put there, but at least I was able to properly identify the joists. For placement of the first plank, measurements were made to a nearby wall, and the second plank was placed by measurements to the first, along with the use of the stud-finder and a square. I fabricated a small drilling template from some scrap aluminum I had on hand to insure consistent hole placement across both planks. Other tools used included a Makita circular saw Makita 5008MGA Magnesium 8-1/4-Inch Circular Saw ,Skil 3400-12 10-Inch Table Saw Kit with Stand (both equipped with a Freud "fine" blade Freud TF1061 10-Inch 60-Tooth Thin Kerf Fine Cut Blade) and a Milwaukee Drill Milwaukee 2601-22 18-Volt Li-ion Compact Drill Kit . Also used were misc. drill bits, including a #12 countersink; a screwdriver, screwdriver bit, a 24" square, a 36" "story stick", a 36" steel rule, (2) 12" "rapid clamps" and an ancient Porter Cable router.
Once everything had been mounted to the ceiling and I had a good "test fit" trial with the rack in place, I pulled it all back down. I then "dressed up" the oak planks a bit using a router. Finally, I sanded and finished them, using a natural finish Minwax Natural Finish, 1 Qt. Once dry, it all went back up. While not an exact match, by any means, the naturally finished oak blends well with the wood and metal of the rack. The woods I found at my local "big box DIY" which might have been a closer match to the wood in the rack, did not offer the strength of the oak, and I find I like the resulting aesthetic, right down to the accent of the brass screw heads.
Although the particulars of my situation made this into a bigger installation task than I anticipated, that will certainly not be the case for everyone. I do wish J. K. Adams would wise up and offer both an 18" and 34" adapter board set - we aren't all going to be mounting across the joists. And please, no matter how tempted you may be to cheat, make the effort (or hire the effort) to be sure this thing is solidly fastened to your joists. Do not let anyone convince you that some gadget will let you use the sheet-rock. That patented miracle-anchor may let you attach a Volkswagen to your sheet-rock wall without a problem, but this is a ceiling, not a wall. Not only do you need to avoid the sickening sound of a hole being torn in your ceiling, and your expensive cookware crashing down on whatever is below, but you also need to consider the real risk of someone being injured. I have no doubt my Le Creuset Dutch Oven could seriously injure, perhaps even kill, when falling from a height. Especially if it squarely struck a small child on the head.
Overall, I would strongly recommend this rack. I have ordered more hooks for mine, and look forward to years of having my cookware properly stored, a nice contrast to the years of cursing and swearing, digging around in dark cabinets while crouched on the floor with a flashlight.
So, enjoy your new rack if you buy one, and Bon Appétit !
BTW, if you are wondering how many hooks come with it, there are 4 long hanging hooks, 6 cast hooks to use on the long sides, and 4 more hooks which can be used on the metal ends to hang more implements. Because the rack needed to be hung on a low soffit, I used those shorter hooks to hang the rack itself (so it wouldn't hang too low over the counter), and they worked fine for that.
