Just playing around. This is a fun and easy project for the kids. Took about an hour to do. This is my first time at this so the sanding and cuts could be much better. But it was fun and thats what it is all about to me. Thanks for the video instructions Stevinmarin.

Pretty cool. I made one myself a few months ago, thanks to Stevinmarin. Kids are so fascinated by it. Fun little project.

Looking good bud! My bride is on me about wanting one of these to put on her desk…. Hope mine comes out as well as yours.

I’ve made several of these. They are fun to make and watch folks try to figure out.

In my adirondack chair project I was working with the table router and learned what happens when you try a roundover bit and swipe the board on the far side of the bit. Not very fun at all. I had adjusted my fence earlier for a different project and then never moved it back to where it should go. When the bit grabbed the 2” wide board and pulled it through, my finger went with it. I am very lucky. It could have been much worse. Obviously I am still learning how to properly use all these fun power tools. lol

Looks great! (The cube, not the finger.) These little cubes always fascinate people. If you haven’t seen this, check it out. A guy sent me pictures of a cube in a cube in a cube, made out of aluminum!

Thank Goodness that it was only a “minor” injury . NEVER run anything between the bit and the fence ! Pay attention as to which way the bit is spinning and proceed with caution.
Keep up the good work and be more careful next time : )

Nice cube, and always be careful out there with those spinning knives.
