The walnut tree (Juglans regia) is a native of Central and Southern Europe. It can reach heights of 50-80 feet, and sometimes even 100 feet. It is cultivated mainly for the nuts it produces. Walnuts are a real jack of all trades, rich in natural fats, vitamins, and trace elements, and are not only a tasty addition to the diets of both humans and animals, but also offer various nutritional and medicinal benefits.
This knife block has been stabilized with Plexiglas® (PMMA) and fully penetrated. It will no longer absorb water, is dimensionally stable, and will no longer crack. It can be easily worked, but it does not react well to excessive heat during processing, so take care when sawing, drilling and grinding. (When it gets very hot - the melt point is at 90 Celsius - the PMMA begins to smear.)
Very easily worked with sharp tools, but the odor stays within limits and is negligible. The stabilizing gives this block excellent hardness, durability, and stability. It is therefore suitable for heavy duty applications or in areas that get wet, such as outdoors.
Dimensions: approx. 125 x 40 x 30 mm

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
