The cube in a cube idea came from American Woodworker.
The inner cube is free floating and will not come out through the holes.
I added some chip carving to the inner cube.
I think it will make a fun conversation piece.

nicely done did you carve before or after you knocked the center cube out

-- I cut it three times and it's still too short

Hey WannaB,
I carved the cube before cutting the corners to free the inner cube.
That made it much more stable and easier to carve rather than trying to support it when it was loose.
It was a fun one!

I like how the chip carving disguises the holes left by drilling out the holes in the large cube. Nice work.
