The making of a Kinderboard
Kinderboards look deceptively simple.
Developed for use in Waldorf early childhood classrooms they're a simple but rather clever piece of play equipment.
Each board is made using Beech plywood; a heavier, denser timber. This ensures its both strong and durable and thus will endure plenty of energetic play. The timber used is also FSC certified.
Creating their elegant shape is the first step, not all planks survive the shaping process and must be discarded. Raw planks that made through the shaping process are then sanded and shaped by hand to ensure a smooth finish. This includes the addition of each boards deceptively simple corner curves. Adding these finishing touches is a surprisingly time-consuming task, which is accomplished with ongoing attention to quality of finish.
