Palter, Nick – Box of Blocks
Story of the Box
Inspired by childhood memories of playing with wooden blocks & a longtime fascination with different types of wood, this year’s box utilizes natural & recycled materials; all wood blocks are from locally sourced / harvested woods & wood remnants:
– Wood Species: As designated on each block with a 2 letter abbreviation which corresponsd to the LEGEND on the front, left side of the Box. Many of blocks have natural checking & / or pest-bored holes, all left to enhance & celebrate their natural beauty.
– Box Handles: Fashioned from leather belt scraps & fastend with chrome Chicago Screws & brads.
– Boos Block Mystery Oil (mineral,linseed & orange oils):
Hand-rubbed onto wood blocks to enhance their natural color & grain.
– English Briwax (containing Beeswax & Carnauba wax): Hand-rubbed onto inside & outside of the wood box.
These blocks are meant to be used, so please go ahead & handle without too much care. ENJOY!
