Anyone can make a Better Block with open-source toolkit

Oak Cliff-based Better Block travels the world demonstrating how to improve slumping streets and commercial districts with a little paint and community engagement.

Now anyone can make a Better Block. Anyone with access to a CNC router and a stockpile of plywood, that is.

The nonprofit released a toolkit with designs for benches, chairs, planters, stages, bus stops, fences and kiosks, which can be downloaded for free. A computer-aided machine, the CNC router, can cut the items out of plywood, and the pieces are snapped together.

Find the toolkit here, and watch the video above to see what it’s all about.
