Exploring Cubes

I have been fiddling about with making cubes out of quarter inch material and a 90 degree bit. Here are a few examples:

I did a full writeup of the project here for anyone who is interested:


If you’re still looking for ways to light the cube with the hexagon pattern, have you considered rice paper inside it? Just like shoji lamps, it will help to diffuse the light and the hexagons will make some cool shadows. If you make a stand and sit it up on one corner, it would look pretty cool. I want to use my Shapeoko to make shoji-ish lamps for my kids but with comic book scenes or whatever kid thing they’re into when I build them.


That’s a good idea, especially if I make a larger version. Thanks!
