I’ve got one of these on the list to make. Why didn’t you cut the inner boxes free?

I think if you cut it free it would be able to fall out, right? I’ve seen this stuff done on a lathe in the Woodturning Wizardry book but I can’t force myself to spring for the special turning tools you need. Nice trick tho. Might have to make a couple. :)

Good job.

no there is a trick on how to cut them free so they wont fall out, you have to cut the inner cube so it stays a square and not take off the corners

That is a neat triple cube. I’ll have to try to make one, too. It is nice conversation piece!!
