Our handmade wooden alphabet boards & display stands are designed with multiple uses in mind - as a tabletop reference board, a piece of art, a tracing tool, and a large, sturdy surface for practicing letter recognition or playing games. Inspired by Montessori-style natural materials and the concept of sandpaper letters, this engraved alphabet allows children to trace their fingers in the grooves of the wood and feel each letterform while absorbing the beauty of the alphabet (uppercase & lowercase) in a crisp, clear, easy-to-read sans serif font. Our wooden boards & coordinating stands are crafted by hand in our Ohio studio from locally sourced wood. Sealed with food-grade mineral oil and safe for babies & children to enjoy. Made from plywood & hard maple. Our line of modern learning resources are a lovely addition to a playroom or homeschool environment & are sure to be treasured for years to come. Each item is unique and made-to-order; wood tone & grain will vary from piece to piece.
