Hand assembled, finger jointed cubes with the computational ornamentation of space packing circles.

There are seven total cubes of varying size. Each cube is unique.

These cubes are made from the same sheet of hand selected 1/16” solid red oak hardwood. The wood is a pale red color, with linear grain and intermittent dark highlights. The interior cuts of the circles reveal a dark brown color.

I hand assemble each cube from six laser cut box jointed faces. The precision tooth geometry of each face of the cube is computed given the desired cube size and properties of the material being used. They literally snap together.

A minimal amount of water soluble glue is applied to strengthen the construction.

The exterior of each cube is delicately hand sanded to a fine finish. I take great effort to remove all laser cutting residue, exposing the full beauty of the wood grain. The wood is left raw. No chemical treatments of any kind are used.

The cubes are light to the touch and delicate to hold. Using little material to create their spacious form, they seem to float above your hand.

I wrote the computer program that generates these patterns. I am the sole operator in the studio and personally create each object, from material selection to lasers & smoke to fine finishing. I’ll even be packaging this order with my personal thanks.
