I was asked to make some building blocks that would be displayed at a baby shower and then would be used by the baby. The request was make some blocks and she would paint them in many different colors. Well, I don’t really like to give my projects out unfinished and I don’t like to paint things, I bought an assortment of exotic wood cutoffs, Picture 3, and used some of it to make the blocks.
I did have to glue up some pieces but the majority of them are single piece. The process was sand with 120 grit and then 220 grit, and using the sandpaper to knock down the corners. (I don’t have a router table, yet….)The finish is mineral oil, something that should be non-toxic for babies and the finish can be revived easily after years of use.
Thanks for looking.
