socrbent and his references http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73494# were the inspiration for this fun project.
The bonus, for me besides these wonderful ornaments was
1. Realizing the need for and making drill press fence (again with lumberjock help!)
2. Being reminded to adjust the speed and tension on the drill press
(It was very slow going on the end grain of the larger cube until I had the tension right on the drill press belt. Slow is also better than fast as you could start a fire.)
3. Learning that a dremel tool is good for the final corners release cuts
Now to figure out a reasonable way to sand the inner smaller cubes (See comments)
