I have seen a number of jocks post their box in a box creations so I finally thought I should try to make one of my own.

It worked for the most part. I used a piece of scrap maple, a bad idea as it burned alot, no matter how slow I went into it. Funny thing though, it was only on three of the sides it did this, the other three were fine. I am not sure what the difference would be. I am thinking grain direction but one was on the end grain and the other two were on the side grain. Go figure. It was a brand new bit that had never been used.

My daughter loves it and keeps trying to take the block out of the centre.

Welcome to the “Box in a Box Fraternity”
Well done, it looks good.
Now, are you going to go for the “Box inside a Box inside a Box” cube ???? :-)

I thought about a box in a box in a box in a box. I’ll have to find time to make the attempt.
