Rubberwood #1

     What can we say?  This is our smallest set of blocks and gives the beginning child their first taste of Unit Blocks.     

     Rubberwood is a somewhat rougher grained hardwood a bit like Ash or Honey Maple in texture.  It is salvaged from aging trees on Rubber Plantations is SE Asia by pressure immersing in Borate insecticides prior to drying.  It weighs about 15% less than hard maple.  Hard maple requires about 1450 lbs to mar the surface; rubberwood requires about 960 pounds to mar the surface (Janka Test).  Nevertheless it is exceedingly cheap and is a popular material for blocks where price is the major consideration.  These blocks satisfy all of the conditions of CPSC as to safety and will provide many hours of play.
