IMPORTANT: For those of you are looking to buy cubes, we have a sales page here!
We happen to be fans of Big Bang Theory and in one episode, we spotted a Rubik's Cube tissue box somewhere in their geek apartment (back in October?). Of course they're not the first one to have this idea but we got curious and were convinced they would make awesome Christmas gifts for our friends. In the end we overdid it a little and made every cubic (and geek-ish) item we could think of. The result? A certain annoyed person who had to cut all those small pieces of wood for us (he paid us back with cutting them half-heartedly and not so precise as usual but no hard feelings..). Every cube made in a different way (some painted, stenciled, glued,..). Many gifts and actually none left for ourselves to keep and no drive to make more, ... as always.
Now this wouldn't be a real Kanojo.de blog entry if we didn't tell you how it works, so here goes:
Use 1 cm MDF and for one tissue box you'll need: 2 x 15 cm x 15 cm and 4 x 14 cm x 13 cm
The bigger ones are for the top and bottom.
Make the hole about 6,5 cm in diameter.
It's all mixed up photos now. I'll note which tissue box is currently being worked on in which picture.
