My Thanks to Dan for the email on this process that is worth sharing.
I know this is metalwork but I think it is highly possible to do it with wood.
Has anyone done it. I would like to know
There is a link to the whole process below.

If I can fine mine I would post a picture did this in shop class in school. I do not think wood would work it is not strong enough. You are going to have a heck of a time cleaning the hot glue off wood. Worth a try thou post picture if you get it to work.

Hi Tony, Great video. they guy must not have a mill. I nave never see a cube machined like that on the lathe. The boring , I can see. That was neat trick to hold all the pieces together for that last cut that cut them free.

I think Steveinmarin had a video on doing it with Forstner bits. I know I’ve seen it and wanted to try it but there are too many other things to be made.It can be done in wood.

Jenny, post your picture by all means. Would like to see it
Jim, you could always put it on the back burner. I know you like a challenge.

Very impressive work done in metal. Somewhere this has been done in wood, but it’s more impressive in metal. IMHO Thanks for the video.

That one from Steve is really good and if you do a Google search for cube in cube you can find several others that use the same process as Steve did.

Thanks Aaron, I like the drill press technique. Much simpler than the router or the lathe.

This one leaves the corners attached so the inside blocks aren’t loose.

One of these on the shelf would be a conversation piece in the shop for visitors.

I could not believe how easy it was to make on the drill press. It took about an hour.
The tricky bit was separating the 2 cubes
