These cute cubes put the fun into functional, even better, they're easy to build. These cubes are designed to be super versatile and there are two different versions ones, open and ones closed and up to a point, they can be assembled the same way, and this is where the builds differ. To finish, an enclosed cube, you're going to add a front panel to create the cube shape, leaving the top open then you're, going to add the trim to the cube, glue and nail the vertical trim pieces on the sides first, so the edges are flush with the Front and the back then add the vertical trim to the front and back of the cube and when you put these end boards on it's really great, because you cover up your joint here.
So everything looks clean in the end measure and cut the horizontal trim pieces to size and glue and nail those in place add a little wood filler to any nail holes or gaps and then sand that down. You don't want the lid to be a tight fit. So cut that piece to 15 and 7/8 by 15 and 7/8 drill a couple finger holes do this on a piece of scrap wood so that MDF doesn't tear and make sure you sand. Those really well and the lid fits perfectly on our little ledge. Now. It's time to work on our open-faced cube instead of adding a front panel, you're going to add a top to the cube, leaving the side or face open for easy access to support.
The trim on this open face. Add two horizontal trim pieces and two vertical pieces. So the edges are flushed with the MDF. Then, just like the enclosed cube, add all your exterior trim pieces now we're going to add magnets to the sides of the cube so that they hold together really well, and what you want to do is make sure that everything's measured out super well. So the pair's line up because, as you know, magnets can attract as well as repel so measure everything out out well and figure out your pair's before you start drilling. You want the magnets to sit flush, so drill three quarter inch holes to a depth of 3/16 of an inch, an easy way to keep from drilling too deep, put tape on your spade bit 3/16 of an inch from the cutting edges and then just drill down To the tape, it's easy to over drill, so take your time here so sand.
