what to do with all these blocks!!

Hi. So I'm closing my studio for a few years while i raise my new daughter. I'm wondering if anyone had a low maintenance way of storing cherry wood blocks for a few years. I was thinking home depot buckets with lids. What do you think? I have like 30-40 blocks. Thanks

I've stored a group that way for ten plus years now. I would add a very small amount of clorox to the stuff. They just do fine.

The daughter? That will take a good deal more time than you've allotted. It doesn't even really get going until she gets to 7th and 8th grade and entirely loses her mind. She'll start to get it back at about 16. The blocks will be fine.

What Pete said. I have blocks that outlasted my daughters. The fir handles don't do nearly as well as the cherry blocks. Watch out for mosquitos.

I have been keeping old Walter Evens blocks and molds I stocked up on ten years now, and I just keep them in plastic bags with wet paper. Seal the bags with ties or tape and close them in a large plastic bin and put them in a basement....
I have kept them for over ten years that way, just make sure they stay totally sealed.

Oh Hell, Dry them out, let them crack and sell them in the collectibles section on glass on ebay. You'll probably get more for them than you ever paid....
