More ideas from Olve
The beauty of wood grain never ceases to amazing me. I love how each type of wood has unique characteristics, patterns and, of course, different colours. Vicky from Asher Jasper created these Hardwood Building Blocks to not only give children a natural toy to learn from but to teach what makes wood different from colour to smell to texture

Set of 10 Natural Hardwood Building Blocks by asherjasper on Etsy, cool to see the difference between these woods. Would be nice to have a few sets to use as blocks in creative play. Great way to tie in a bit of literacy development and science as well.


AT THE ELM. Carpenter Crisow von Schulz constructed the cabinets in this Amsterdam houseboat kitchen from a single elm tree. The organically curving lines were intended as a contrast to the rectilinear architecture of the houseboat. Photo by: Rene Mesman
