Here is another breadboard I made as a Christmas present. The square pegs are made from purple heart and drawbored to hold it all together. The middlle peg is fit tight but the two sides were slotted to allow for some wood movement and hopefully not crack the project when it gets humid out again. the slash knot in the main board gave some interesting character so I kept it and shapped the end to match the profile. It was a fun project but the softness of the pine makes it difficult compared to the hardwood versions. Finish is varnish with a handrubbed wax.
