    Cube in a Cube

    Made from a block of Ash. The inner cube can not be removed from the outer cube.
    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    I'm guessing it is the same technique as with the wood arrow through small holes drilled in a bottle.

    Hi Les,

    That looks a lot better than the ones I turn out. I don't have a large forstner bit so my inner cube isn't near as big.

    Very cool, Les. I'm still trying to figure out how you do it.

    Cube in a Cube

    Very nice looking cube Les.

    Hmmm, try this one.

    The block is 2.5" x 2.5" x 2.5".
    The inner block is about 1.25" x 1.25" x 1.25".
    The little block is less that .75" x .75" x .75".

    This was a gift made by a great friend, John Dumont of Cape Gerardeau, MO. He actually brought it to me here in Hawaii last year on his vacation (from retirement, LOL).

    I'm thinking he said it was Poplar.
