Topic tags/keywords: milling finishing joining

Make a 6” cube out of particle board, cover with laminate on all sides. See how close you can get to 6”s finished size.
It is to be joined with rabbits and glued together.
It sounds so easy to do. When your done Mic. it if you have one or just measure it to within 1/64th.
Good luck!
Also it must be square in all directions!!

Sounds like a good challenge. Then I can use it to hold the shop door open rather than the can of paint I use now.

That will work, you may end up with three or four before your done. You could use two of them to practice your inlay skills and make a set of dice.
This was a project we had in Cabinetmaking school, everyone kind of laughed at first. To get it right on 6” + or- 1/64th is a real trick if you follow the rules.
Good Luck
I cant wait to see those dice.LOL

Cube, heck!
