Clever! And attractive!

Can you help me with dimensions? About 4” cube? Do they open or conceal a surprise inside or are they merely decorative?

Did you miter all edges? Can you show us a close up of the corners?

Thanks tons for sharing!

Awesome~!

These seem like a great project to get one’s accuracy dialed in. It would also make a great project that would use simple scrap pieces—or inexpensive ones if pine were used—for learning miters, gluing, and finishes.

Thanks for answering my questions!

At first I didn’t realised that they are hollow. Very original idea, I’ve got to try some, I have lot of small leftovers.
