This looks like a fun project. The idea is from American Woodworker.

To make it more chip carve-able, I was thinking about not drilling the large holes in all the squares and then chip carving those surfaces. That along with the cut off corners would make a really cool piece.
What do you think?

Step-by-step instructions are found here –

If you make a small one, carve it, then build a larger one around it, that would be cool, too.

thanks for the link!

Hi Rod, build a larger one around it
I really like the extra twist you added to this project.
I’ll have to be careful when cutting off the corners on the large outside cube so I wouldn’t cut into the inner cube. The first corner cut would be the hardest cuz you couldn’t see inside.
Any thoughts on how to do this?
