A baby block I made for my newest nephew for Christmas. I got the Idea form fellow Lumberjock, High Rock Woodworking. The woods used are padauk, maple, and lacewood. Thanks for looking!

Good job on the finishing – it looks like all the edges are smooth enough for a babies hand. I can picture a set of these with a bell or rattle on the inside. How did you do the lettering?

Did you use a box joint jig? Looks like all six pieces have the same shape.

Thanks, I did put sling shot balls in there before I glued the last piece. So it does rattle. I did the lettering with just black spray paint and a stencil. And I did use a box joint jig. There are 4 sides that are the same the 2 other sides are different

It’s beautiful, like the smooth edges and wood colors. The joints look amazing. Great work!
