Wood Blocks

Daniel Chaffin, a maker of exquisitely beautiful and wholesome furniture here in Louisville posted to facebook the other day that there was a pile of scrap wood (hardwoods!) on the alley side of his shop, free for the taking.  With visions of fighting a horde, I zoomed to the alley side of his shop and found this gorgeous sight (no horde):


I took a small batch home and asked my lovely husband:


(the miter saw is in his studio) if he would cut the wood down
in to block sizes for Finn:


and he said yes, just mark the cuts.
So, here is the wood,
marked and ready for transport to the studio:


Next Thursday, when the lovely Jenna:


is over to watch Finn, she said she will help to sand the blocks so that they are safe for play.

Lovely! Nothing beats wooden blocks--unless they are handmade and free!
