If you are planning on hosting a steampunk themed absinthe & cheese party, and everything else in your home is already steampunk-ified, considering adding a steampunk cheese cutter to your appetizer table!

My sister-in-law’s father passed away last week, and we had a get-together at his home to celebrate his life. Dan King was an engineer by trade and a craftsman at heart, and he built many beautiful devices for his home and his family. These are photos of a cheese cutter he made, which I think has a distinctly steampunk quality to it.

He didn’t invent this design, but rather made a beautiful reproduction from a gift he received. (If you know anything about the original designer, please post in the comments so I can credit the creator). This design is simple yet, elegant, and Dan made a number of these for his family.

If you decide to make one, this will certainly make for a wonderful conversation piece at your absinthe and cheese gathering! And if you do make one, please post a photo in the comments.

In loving memory of Dan King; brother, husband, father, grandfather and master-craftsman, 1945 - 2011.

Materials:
• Small piece of hard-wood (maybe cedar), about 4" by 6"
• Three brass screws
• Piece of wire (piano wire or guitar string would work)
• Brass thumb-bolt and nut
• Brass hook latch eye
