Cube inside a Cube

Cut out the corners:
Using a knife, cut out the corners attaching the cubes together. If the corners are too large, lower your drill press depth gauge approx. 1/32", and continue drilling, making sure the dot is in the corner of your jig. Keep lowering the depth gauge until the corners can be cut out easily. (1/16" wide)
Tagua Nut Cube:
After making my first cube I decided to experiment with making a Tagua Nut cube (Tagua Nut is a vegtable ivory) Because of the size of the nut the cube has to be much smaller, another problem is that the inside of the Tagua Nut is hollow, which meant the inner cube broke apart and I had to glue it together. Otherwise the project was a success. You can purchase Tagua nut at various art/woodworking stores my favorite is LeeValley.
