I recently made my niece some custom wood-burned blocks for her 1st birthday using my trusty wood burning tool and some pre-cut wood blocks from my local craft supply store.
My original intention was to decorate each block with one letter and add one or two designs, leaving some sides bare on each block. Somehow they just did not feel complete, so before i knew it, my birthday present was belated, but I had all 6 sides covered!
Each woodland themed design you see is my own, which I first sketched on paper, then on the block, finally burning with a wood burning tool (similar to a soldering iron).
The font for the numbers and letters shown in the above images is Cooper Black, a serif font that should come standard on your PC or Mac.
I hope my niece has a ball (or a cube) with these blocks!
I also hope to reuse some of these designs in other projects soon!
