Step 1: Step 1 : Saw the Cubes

Saw the cubes into 16 equal pieces.

In this case, a beam is used with a length of 2100mm and a thickness of 40mm

Step 2: Step 2: Make the Holes

If the cubes are cut, a hole can be drilled in the sides of the cubes.

The size of the hole depends on the thickness of the aluminum rods.

Step 3: Step 3 : Push Cube on the Rods

After the rods are cut into pieces of 200 mm, the cubes can be pushed onto the rods.

Between each cube a roundel is stopped in order to keep some space between the cubes.

Step 4: Step 4 : Drill Holes in the Beams

You need to make 4 holes in the beams in which the aluminium rods are fixed.

You have to drill these holes with a smaller drill as before, so that the rods aren't able to move anymore.

Step 5: Step 5: Stuck the Bars Between the Beams

When you have slid the four cubes over the rod, it can be put firmly in the first beam.

When all the bars are stuck in the first beam, the 2nd beam can be attached to the rods.

Step 6: Step 6: Draw the Games on the Cubes

We'll make the games OXO and "four in a row".

The shape of the letter 0 and the letter X are cut out of cardboard, so there is then an aerosol.

You can color the aerosls with a marker on the cubes.

For ''Four in a row'' we need to cut 16 red and 16 yellow circles and glue them on the cubes.

    I've never played "four in a row". Growing up my tic-tac-toe games were always 3x3. I still love your build!
