Me and simple toys again. Shaft of stacking set is angled so its more difficult to stack the blocks. For grownups.
My Yugo whit beech pieces, starting material for this toys. This is anniversary photo of my Yugo, 18 years of life. He can vote now.

Great Fun, my Friend!!
I had a set of these growing up and spent many enjoyable hours building mansions and castles with them…
Thanks for the memories!!

I like these a lot. Cutting each stack from what looks like the same piece was a very nice touch. It will be interesting to see how many of the kids obsess about making sure the grain lines up correctly.

What finish if any did you put on the blocks?
What rough sizes are the squares, triangles and rectangles? (I have a one year old and would love to be make a few of these.)

great job

Thanks people. I am really surprised whit such positive response for something so simple.

Squares are 44 mm x 44 mm x 44mm, rectangles are two squares and triangle is 1/2 of the square.

Finish is eco varnish LECO whit ISO 14006 certificate (non-toxic and kids friendly). Food grade mineral oil is safe and good option.

Please do not insult my Yugo. He survived my hormonal years, smuggled Bulgarian gasoline during embargo, NATO bombing and steal can move my entire family uphill whit reasonable speed. Even faster downhill. There is no thief touch him. Once I forgot him unlock for two days. Who need expensive anti-theft systems you just need YUGO!!!

Dragan, now these I really like! Simple is so wonderful. I will have to start a set for my little ones when the Christmas season is over. And mineral oil is a great idea, I think that if I sand them smooth this will work great!

thanks so much for sharing. :)

And be glad that your Yugo is 18! If it was much younger you would not have been able to get those blocks back! A wise choice for your carrier.
