# Thread: My first Turner's Cube

1. ## My first Turner's Cube

First one I've ever made- s only small, but I've found a 100mm thick ally cube which I've got my beady eye on next

2. Nice one!
Have fun with the aluminum project.
Thanks for sharing the photos.

4. Hehe the boss is gonna take it to an exhibition with him as a show-off piece... he can't figure out how I made it, I seen him in the office yesterday staring at it and scratching his head lol and I aint saying

Now... what can I do with this....

5. Update: I decided to apply a tint to the cube (like what you get on sunglasses). I was going to go for blue or green, but decided on a light grey colour... makes it look more serious

Argh,.. attachements messed up.. prolly me and the chemicals lol... hang on

6. Incidentally, the dimensions I used are as follows (I got them off a chap on this site, so thank you v much! they worked perfectly).

Bore= 85% of cube 1 size.
Depth= 15% of cube 1 size.
Cube 2 = Cube 1-(Depth x 2).

7. Is it just me or is it a square block with two different diameter counter bores on each face?

You boss cant figure that out?

8. You're an engineer... my boss is a finance expert

10. Cool!

How'd you do the tint, or did you just buy tined material?

Cheers,

11. We titnt prescription glasses (spectacles) in all colours. I just asked one of the guys to put it through the tint bath- took about 15 mins.

12. ## First cube

The teachers bet me I couldn't do it. It was the first cnc program I wrote.
Final dimensions are 2.5", out of aluminum. I'm going to try smaller with as many boxes and also different shapes.
