    My washer is 25 years old, got it as a wedding present. Zanusi FL828 made back in the day when things were built to last, drum 2 half's bolted together so it can be split to change the bearings. Now a days they are made in one piece so once the bearings go they are scrap. 3 kids and probably averaged 3 washes per day over it's lifetime......27,375 estimated washes to date... problem is i keep fixing it so it hasn't died yet........i take plenty home from the tip though.

    Yes pine is soft but......for a couple of carcasses a year they would probably do fine as a a handy chopping block. You could laminate them in oak flooring boards if you wanted a harder wearing surface although you may have issues with the hard and soft wood expanding and contracting at different rates. My lad makes wooden boards and he was caught out with one where he combined end grain and side grain looked the part but... was prone to splitting along the joints. (The one in the first picture below) P1030374_zpsdovmaexq by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr All end grain or all side grain works fine. Here are some others he made.
