This is a project that can be done over a few days. It takes some time to sand the edges of the cubes, and you'll need to allow a few days for glue to set, and paint or stain to dry.
I turned my little Tetrimino blocks into magnets, but you could make them into anything really.
Step 1: Supplies
You'll also need the following:
- Sandpaper (I used somewhere around 100 grit, but if you want a smooth finish be sure to get some higher grit, too)
- Tack Glue, or Wood Glue
- Wood Stain or Paint
- An Idea for the End Product
Step 2: Know Your Tetriminos
I - Made up of four blocks in a straight line.
O - Four blocks which are formed into a 2 x 2 square.
J - A column of three vertical blocks, with one placed to the bottom left.
L - A column of three vertical blocks, with one placed to the bottom right.
T - Three blocks forming a row, with one added below the center.
S - Two stacked horizontal blocks, with the top one offset to the right.
Z - Two stacked horizontal blocks, with the top one offset to the left.
