Inspire cleanup AND brain exercise with this classic Rubik's Cube themed designer chest. Includes plans and step by step instructions to build your very own.
30 years on from its invention, Rubik's cube is still instantly
recognizable. People like picking it up, turning it a few times, maybe doing
a side or two (or five, as a braggart in my class once memorably claimed).
Solving the cube remains a reasonably rare feat - you're either smart enough
to have figured it out yourself, or geeky enough to have followed a how-to,
and most people are neither.
Rubik's cube is not just the quintessential
hand-held puzzle, though: it's also an iconic piece of design. This cubic piece of furniture has only one of the three required axes of rotation, so is unsolvable in the conventional sense, but can be arranged in any configuration you like by non-sporting means. The drawers do pose a brain-bending challenge: the first thing you have to solve is detecting that they're there, and all three have hidden locks in different locations.
