In thinking about what to do for the multiples assignment, I came across a tutorial on making a cube within a cube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfV_APBk16Q) . I thought that this would be a novel idea for this project, since there would be multiples within each object. So I wanted to do a cube within a cube, within a cube.
I began by cutting down a 4x4x8′ into a several 4″x”4″x 4″ blocks. Using a clamp and a block to move the source wood into made this process easier and the blocks pretty uniform.
Next I moved onto the drill press to cut out the cubes inside these cubes. I made another jig to place each block on the press to get uniform results and using two forstener bits. The picture I took of that jig is missing from my phone documentation. 🙁
During the process of making the second cubes in the series of blocks I began to experience catastrophic failure due to the softness of the wood.
Good thing I made lots extra. Multiply by Pi
