I’d previously seen one of these and decided to try making one, basically the outer cube contains an inner cube that can’t come out while both pieces are obviously not pieced together making it a mystery how the smaller one got into the bigger one. 4.50 at the local lumber place secured a piece of 2.5” thick mahogany that could produce 10 of these which was a good thing. The original I’d seen had a solid center block that had large dimples in it from the forstner bit that I didn’t like, turns out adding holes to the inner block increases the chance of the drill bit destroying the whole piece. The first attempt came out perfect till I over sanded and the inner block could slip out. The next 6 destructed at various stages of trying to square off the inner box or hollowing out the inner box, all of them evaporated in an impressive manner. The whole piece was finished with danish oil.
