Storage Cubes - a Basic Build [extended]



Extended version of the cubes video with a bit more detail on the parallel guides and the drilling guides. As always, I'd appreciate your feedback as the potential for this as a module in a basic builds course.


A course like this would have more introductory chat, of course, but do you feel that everything would be otherwise covered? Thanks! Peter

Thanks Tom; yes, that's the plan, basic videos on the fundamentals of construction, boxes / cubes, frames etc...

Hi Peter, I liked the extended video better for a beginner. Setup is a big part of getting things accurate and consistent.

I'll say it - someone has to - you seem to have ticked all the boxes …

As a basic build it is great to show what can be done without the assistance of biscuits or Dominoes.

Several years ago I made the same mistake while building some cupboards for our boat, involving mitred corners. I cut the slots for the biscuits too deep. I still cringe at the sight of the filler I used - but on the other hand no one has mentioned it. I think that it one of those things that are screamingly obvious to the perpetrator but nobody seems to notice.

I really liked this simple build, not sure was it 18mm or 12mm you based the cubes on?

Now there is another thing we would like to see... Peter standing on a 12mm thick cube 🤣.


It all for research purposes after all 🤔

I liked the extra detail about the mitre cut. I was going to ask in the shorter version but I am glad i watched this first.


I would suggest you do a basics video on how to calibrate the angles, as others might not be as lucky as you were.


finally ... hell yes i want to see you jumping on the boxes :-D

Hey Dafydd. Yes, good point about fine-tuning the angles; I'll ad a section in for that, thanks! 👍
