I have always wanted to get a set of blocks for myself. Its a great way to be creative. So yesterday while I was in the garage an idea popped into my head. I had a lot of scrap wood laying around from other projects that I have been working on. I was going to eventually throw them out anyway. So I decided why not just take those scrap pieces and cut out Kapla Blocks.
Hey its a cool project. Something that can be done on your free time. And in addition you are recycling and saving money
. This could be an excellent Christmas gift for someone.
Lets get started...
