A couple of months ago, someone posted a nifty project regarding the use of a Forstner bit to produce a “ball in a box” from a single piece of wood. If I recall, the post also had links to a fellow (youtube) who creates several “remarkable” wooden puzzles.

I’ve looked and looked, but can’t find the post. Wish I had marked it on my favorites.

Can someone help me locate the post?

Thanks!

I’m not ignoring you, Buddy….I can’t find it either. Maybe it was a joint hallucination. :-)

I don’t even know the correct name of the project, or I’d google it. You forstner into six sides of a block of wood, until a loose center piece is left to tumble around.

I work with Sawdustonmyshoulders. He found it – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfV_APBk16Q. It’s called a “Cube in a cube.”

If I may offer a suggestion, use 2 Forstner bits. Grind the starter tip off the second one. Start your holes as normal but stop at about 1/8” into the block. After starting all sides, change bits and finish all the holes. This will give a smooth inside block without the starter point marks in it.
