Nicely done. Hopefully, you made several for each grade of paper you are apt to use… I made a few of these and gave them away as gifts… they were very much appreciated by the recipients.
Suggest adding some self-stick cork material to the bottom to soften the sanding, and reduce friction heat should you sand aggressively… I also found that using a round over bit on the edge of in the wing nut hole makes it more comfortable when removing the wing nut.
These blocks are very comfortable to the hand—enjoyable to use.

Great project! In fact, it was the original 2009 blog by Karson that introduced me to Lumberjocks, i.e. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/15783
