I made a few Cool Cubes as gifts for the adults in my life. This version is designed to use the “Hobby Boards” available at various lumber stores around the Portland area. I found mine at Mr Plywood. They carry 1/2″ X 5.5″ X 36″ boards that are perfect for this project. I use the extra 12″ piece on the end of the hobby board to make a bottom and top index block to complete the cube rather than using 1/4″ hard board. My updated project is available for download HERE.

CoolCube UpdateThis photo shows the Poplar bottom and back side of the top. Both parts were milled from the extra material from the Hobby Board I got at Mr Plywood.

This is a modified version of the Cool Cubes free project available on Vectric web site HERE. I added a few extra features so you can use the Hobby Boards to cut all the parts for the box. No need for hardboard or any other materials but dowel.
