Building building blocks :
Using my own waste for handheld fun: in the form of wooden asymmetrical joining building blocks.
The blocks are fabricated in small batch series utilizing the pretty specks of wood left over from building furniture and larger objects.
Each piece is hand milled to fluctuate in shape, size and layout.
The joinery is precise enough to offer some holding power between the blocks - cantilevered configurations can be explored.
For durability they are made of only dense wood varieties.
The edges are heavily chamfered for finger friendliness and in the last step the blocks are finished in a non-toxic danish oil.
The first set was for my little niece Karina – she seems to love them – more shall be made…
