    Cube In a Cube

    Made a few more of these for the grand-kids for Christmas.
    The Inner Cube can not be removed from the Outer Cube!

    Those are very cool. Les. Looks like your setup was dead-on accurate.

    The tiny dimple on the inner cube, and the size of the windows in the outer cube should be a pretty good clue....

    But it being in the lathe project showcase threw me off. Methinks the only thing spinning in this project is a forstner bit.

    Ahhh, Now I see your confusion. I've seen tutorials where these have been done on a drill press instead...

    I suspect this one was done on a drill press, too. He posts so many great pics here, I think Les' browser is set to automatically go to the Lathe Project Showcase whenever he visits the forum.

    Very nice Les. I have the book and just finished making the tools for the japanese puzzle balls. Now just to get the time to make one. How long did it take to do one of those?
