Box Blocks
Huge Unit Blocks for Group Play

American Hard Maple Blocks - "the real deal"


The Huge Blocks on this page are called
Box Blocks and they continue in the same scale as our school sized unit blocks but extend into the next increments of size.  Lumber does not come in an infinity of sizes.  It is dried as planks in a kiln, and the largest common thickness is typically 2"  (called 'eight quarter').  Instead of making larger blocks as a single piece (which would be too heavy anyway) we extend the range of size by making boxes (open ended).  Thus we have a set of boxes that are 2-3/4 by 2-3/4 in cross section by a variety of lengths - and these correspond in the regular unit blocks to square columns or pillars. Next we have boxes that are 2-3/4 by 5-1/2 in cross section by a variety of lengths and these correspond to very large unit blocks . . . .and so on up to our humongous box that is 5-1/2 by 11 by 22".

These boxes are all amply strong enough to stand on (including elephants), but users should be cautioned to watch out for large assemblages because just like regular blocks, they can all fall down and someone could get injured climbing on them.  These are American Hard Maple and are for indoor use only unless painted.
