  • something to do while between projects

    Found this on You tube under (cube in a cube). Yes I pushed it. One of them is a cube in a cube in a cube.... They take about 30 to 45 minutes each to do but what else are you going to do when you are waiting for the glue or paint to dry.....


    Hope you like them just wanted to show them off. They have no purpose that I can think of but now I don't have a 3" x 3" block of wood in the drop pile any more.

      Thats just it. It has no function no purpose but because the inner cubes won't come out of the outer ones and it is all made from the same block of wood folks pick it up and just keep trying to get the smaller ones out but they can't.

              Nice. I made a cube in a cube as my first project once I got my drill press. My wife said I needed to make two more. One for my dad and one for my sister and tell that it is a puzzle them to get the block out without breaking it.

                Very cool. I just watched the video and must try one myself (two cube only).

                Good job on the three cube version, thanks for posting and the idea.

                      I made these for my grandkids. I glued eyes over the holes created by the Forstner bit on all sides.

                      Drove them nuts and then I sent them home to mom and dad (hehehe)

                        Weiner9696 the eyes are a great idea to hide the holes. I think I will try it.

                        As for sending the grand kids home. My Dad called that "Grandparents Rights" did it to me a few times just waiting for my turn. Hahahaha He took them out to the movies fed them popcorn candy hot dogs SUGAR chocolate anything they wanted THEN brought them home. I was up all night they were wired..... "GRANDPARENTS RIGHTS"

                          Leading up to my retirement I too worried about who would replace me. Truth be told I was more worried than my management. It took a couple months after my retirement for the feelings to go away. Now I only miss the people and not the job.

                          is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

                          When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                          I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
