Rubik's Cube Hideaway Box

Introduction: Rubik's Cube Hideaway Box

This box is a great way to hide things from prying eyes. It has a realistic Rubik's Cube look, but it is hollowed out to create a storage place.

Step 1: First Step

First you want to take the measurements of your desired Rubik's Cube. We chose the common 2" by 2" Rubik's Cube.

Step 2: Next Step

Open Sketchup or your preferred CAD program. There are two ways that you can do this. The first is designing the bottom 2/3's of the box and hollowing it out. You will want to create small indents for where the cubes will go. Then you will want to create cubes that have the right measurements and are the right quantity. The next step is to design the last 1/3 of the box. Make it the same measurements but instead of an indent create an out dent so the lid wont slide off(keep in mind you still need room to store things in it). In the include the hole for the cube to slide in. Print off everything and then slide your cubes in. Guess what, you're done!!!!!

The other way is to make a hollowed out box with a lid and put Rubik's Cube Stickers on it.

Step 3: Last Step

Now all you have to do is print off your box and hide your precious things inside of it so that if your house ever gets robbed your things will be safe.

    That's a neat box! Do you have any progress photos of how you designed it or files to use to print one?

    We are working on putting images of our design in the CAD program into our Instructible.
