Exterior End Grain


In 1866, Samuel Nicholson of Boston, MA patented his end grain wood block pavers for street paving, and we've brought em back! End Grain wooden blocks were used for street paving in Europe, Australia, and in the USA, and there remain many streets here in the USA still paved with end grain blocks. Check out our photos of Wood Paver Alley, Chicago. And how about our blocks on Wall Street, in NYC!
