I posted a blog on a project made on a metal lathe.
A ‘Cube Within A Cube’
I since found out there were plenty of examples of it being done in wood.
This is the blog;
I had to make one and as I commented in the blog;
“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”
I used Camphor Laurel and finished it with wipe on poly.

Nice going, Tony and you made it out of a nice piece of wood. I have been meaning to try that someday.

Cheers, Jim

I really enjoy items of this sort. I know a boy in need of something positive in his life and this might be a nice gift idea. Something small, yet interesting.

Pointer, a perfect thing for kids to think about instead of sticking their heads in a phone all day.

Very cool Grumpy. Something to talk about for new visitors in the shop, or as a knickknack in the home
