Default 3-D Initial Cube

I just finished drawing this pattern. It is a 1.5" cube n which three initials are cut from three sides. Example; if I cut D V E, then I will see a D on one side, a V on the other, and and E on the third. If you have problems picturing it, you glue the patterns on what would be the 1, 2, and 3 sides of a standard die (single dice)

I figure they would make great stocking stuffers and you could take orders at shows.

I am leaving on a business trip to (East Coast and Germany) on Monday and I don't use the power tools before I leave.

So someone should make some and report back.

Dave

Followup, I was so impressed with Wood Dog's cube where he made the top letter diagonal, that I went and and added diagonal letters to the stencils. Enjoy! -Dave

Thanks. This is a great idea. I have printed a copy and will try it today. I'll let you know how it works.

I don't see how it will work. I'll have to give it a try after Thanksgiving. It looks like to me if you cut out one letter (A) and then cut the letter (B) on the opposite side you will cut out part of the original letter. If it is on the adjacent side that may work but adding in a 3rd letter looks like it will compromise the opposing side again. I can't envision getting away with 3 letters. My brain can't wraparound it. I hope someone gives it a go so we can all see the finished project.

I would think that you would only be able to cut on two sides of the blank...with the cuts going all the way through. And one of the letters would be backwards. I'm like you Mike...can not picture it in my "old" mind. I keep thinking it is like a compound cut ornament.

I think he means create overlays to go on an actual cube....

I think is should work, I cut a 3 sided compound pattern when I cut the little baby grand piano that was in the other magazine Nov 2010 and it came out fine.
BTW.....thanks for the alphabet pattern Dave. Compounds cuts are my favorite, so I just have to cut some letters.

Ok, if I'm getting this right...It's a compound cut with one letter on top, and the other two letters on the sides....yes??

Now that I read Dave's instruction, he states sides, 1, 2, and 3 of a die. Since I know that the opposite sides of a die always add up to 7...it makes sense to me......
