No pine, I think it would be too soft and have sap that needs to be dried a lot. Maple, cherry, walnut, mahogany are good woods to use.

I hear that's what people who are serious about their steak knives use.

Oak and pine would neither be good for a cutting board. Pine is too soft and sappy as taz pointed out, and oak is too open celled.

You want closed cell woods like maple, cherry, walnut, etc.

It would cure any moth problems you may have.

Seriously, you want a closed cell hardwood. Nothing resinous like pine or cedar. (Some cedar varieties also have a high silica content which will dull blades.) If the tree has a cone leave it alone.
