I decided to make a cube within a cube to use in an upcoming class I am teaching on genealogy to illustrate how we are all connected to one another. My first attempt was not to very success full as you can tell by the blown up cube you see, close call there. Anyway not being deterred by my failing I tried again after remembering what Steve Ramsey said when he show me how to make the project, how you must use the lowest speed on your drill press and completing my fence. I was in cube heaven I did it all though I would like to try a bigger piece of wood n ext time this project was a great deal of fun.

I actually think that in a lot of ways it is an interesting piece. The world is full of chaos but surely Someone must be in control – or at least I hope so. What is the wood and will you put a finish on it?

don’t tell any one, but it is pressure treated wood. I don’t know if I want to keep to blown-up cube, it blew up. It is rather interesting that you are the second person that told me to call it art. I don’t know about it will take a finish but cause it was treated to resist moisture, that is why I spray painted the none blown up cube, but maybe I should give that a try since everybody seems to like my mess ups

I made about 8 plain cubes, broke 2 on the drill press, and went overboard with the sanding on 2 more cleaning up the inside corners, so the inside cubes came out. But it didn’t take too much more time than making 1, and I ended up with 4 good ones.

I had the best luck drilling the end grain first. Have you seen golf ball in cube?
