Here are the tools you will need for making this cube.
The drill press you see is not really necessary, but it makes it a lot easier. i strongly recomend using one.

Step 2: Marking

Begin with sawing out a square wood piece. The length of my cube was about 6 cm, but it may wary vary depending on the drill diameter.
I recommend using a hard type of wood like I did. The wood I used was mahogny.

After marking the senter of all sides you are ready to go to the next step.

Step 3: Drilling

When you drill out the holes be very careful, so you don’t break the wood or cut yourself.
begin whith drilling out the lareger hole. But dont drill it to far in, and always make sure every hole is the same lenght.

Step 4: Cutting out the cubes

Now its time to cut out the cubes : ) be very careful while doing this, so you don’t cut  yourself or  brake the cubes. A sharpe kife is strongly recomended when doing this.

Step 5: Sanding


Now all you have to do is to sand it.
This takes some time and can be hard whit the inner cube.
As always begin with rough sand paper and go down to finer.

Step 6: Finishing

Now you can make a final finish by using some sort of oil or paint.

In the one to the right I used oliven oil. Oliven oil worked just fine.

Other alternativs can be:
Wood oil
Mineral oil
paint
