I just found Lumberjocks and this is my first post! What a great resource for woodworkers. I’ve been posting videos on my YouTube channel for about a year and a half and thought I would share them here too.

This one is a quickie woodworking project showing how to make a cube within a cube. This is a fun and simple project and makes an interesting conversation piece.

Thanks for sharing, welcome to the site also. What would look cool would be to have a second forstner bit with the centre point ground off, so that once the initial hole was cut to a depth 1/4” you could use the second bit to complete the drilling and thereby create the inside cube without centre marks. Woodworkers would now wonder how this is done, alternatively then, with a bit of care you could also then mark/drill the faces of the inside cube to look like a dice or a die!

Just a thought on Xmas Eve! Have a good Xmas.

This is the first video I saw yours on YouTube. Ever since then, I saved your link and check it often for updates. I’ve been doing this for about six months. I check you and The Wood Whisperer on a regular basis.
