Well, the plans are coming along, but I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock. To make the Rubik’s cube pedestal I will need six different colors, and they must be different enough to stand out against each other. This could be hard to do if I stick with natural wood, so I’ve been thinking of going with a single species with a light color such as white oak or maple, then dye it. I want the grain to be obvious, so something transparent is in order, plus, to keep with the “green” part of the build, I want to keep with as natural a material as possible,
Anyone got any suggestions as to wood species, dye material and technique? My experience in this area is just about non existent!
Suggestions for the three woods for the “Louis cube” pattern are also welcome.
I hope to have the SketchUp designs to a good enough state to post in the next day or two.
