This is about as simple as it gets, but these blocks are awesome. A number of years ago, my dad made close to 200 of these. We really enjoyed playing with them as children and teenagers. When I was home for Christmas, I got them out again and made a tower up to the ceiling. When I got home, I made a batch of 56 right away.
They are maple, 3/4×2.5×3 inches. All you have to do is take a 1×3 and chop it into 3 inch lengths, and break the corners and edges. As long as you take some care in making them square, they will stack remarkably high.
