This is my first instructable, so bear with me.  My project is an 8x8 cube light inspired by the Mario Bros question block.  It took me about a month to complete, mainly cause I am easily distracted. Each cube took around 3-5 hours to complete.

Step 1: Parts

2 - 8" clear acrylic cubes (Amazon)
4 - 8" clear acrylic squares (Etsy)
350 - orange 1/2" square tile (Etsy)
350 - black 1/2" square tile (Etsy)
super glue

2 - plastic wiring boxes
2 - light sockets
2 - nipples
2 - locking nuts
2 - 12ft extension cords/lamp wires
2 - light bulbs (LED or CFL)
Can't seem to find the tiles on Etsy or anywhere else.<br>Anyway you could provide a link?
I got these back when Etsy used to let you use Alchemy to post what you need and have the vendor come to you. I used <a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/SundrySupply">SundrySupply</a> for the 1/2&quot; tiles and <a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/pileofhats">A Pile of Hats</a> for the square tops.&nbsp; I'm sure either of those could get you what you need upon request.&nbsp; They cost about $60 and $25 respectively.<br>
could you post a link to where you got the boxes, i've searched amazon but found nothing similar to it
Sure, I listed it next to the Parts. Its from a company called Azar.
Where did you source the cubes?
They are available on Amazon for $16.
