Well done. Looks like it is going to last a few more generations…. nice job of replacement on the sides. Do you think the screw bolts should have been stainless? Or, doesn’t get wet enough to be concerned about rust stains?

Nice job. I’m quite sure the “screw bolts” you refer to are actually called “lag screws”.

looks good, I often wonder what it would be like to make a block out of softwood.

Question—does the pitch in the wood cause any problems, ever? Do you get any resin on your knives (or food for that matter) ?

I have never had any problems with resin or rust in 20 years, so far so good LOL

PS I’m not really sure of the type of wood

The pine looks great. I love the beveled edges. I’m sure it’s good for at least another 20 years.
