    Saw this on Utube and decided to make one.Well described on Utube so no need for details.I have made a no of turners cubes,the smaller ones go down well as card protectors at my poker evenings.Decided on nom 35mm sq alum
    Left the cube oversize and cut the dovetails with a carbide router bit working
    from diagonal centre line out.Finished the dovetails and pinned with a 6mm brass screw before machining outside dims etc. Also made 4 no brass plugs
    to disguise the main pin. Will see if I can fool anyone[​IMG] next poker night[​IMG]

    Like your cube thanks for posting.Found the belt sander mods great
    If I see the the cheap 1" sander I will also have a go.I did a thread on
    the 6" disc sander and use it all the time.The 1" belt would be great for small
    items. Regards barry
