Follow these Steps

Rubik cube Steps

The bottom cube

  • With all your wood cut to size join all 6 pieces, the four sides, front and back together to create a box.

The middle cube

  • Repeat the process for the middles cube as you did for the bottom cube.  
  • Make the drawer that fits into the cube. Make sure that the drawer is the rights size so as to slide into the cube.

The top cube

  • Build the box for the cube in the same way you did the first cube.
  • Cut the door for the cube to cover the front of the cube
  • Give all the cubes a light sand to get rid of any uneven patches
  • Spray the cubes with an undercoat and allow to dry, then apply your top coat

The Squares

  • Having cut out all your squares to size, sand the edges to get rid of any rough edges.
  • Lay the squares out and spray on an undercoat and allow to dry, then apply the different colours of your choice.
  • Attach the door and hinges to the top cube
  • Insert the drawer 
  • You can now stick the squares onto the cubes using a glue gun and make sure that they are evenly spaced.
  • If you want the drawers to be fixed to each other and turn, then you must use a “lazy susan” mechanism between each of the cubes.
