Rubik’s cube chest of drawers

Everybody is probably familiar with the Rubik’s cube, a puzzling toy that is at first fun and then it gets annoying and sometimes obsessing. But let’s stop at fun and take a look at this Rubik’s cube-inspired piece of furniture. Unlike the original piece, this is not a brain teaser as it only focuses on the fun part. The chest only has one of the three required axes of rotation so you wont be able to scramble the pieces neither to solve the puzzle.

Nevertheless, it’s going to be challenging to have such a piece in your home. First, the drawers are well hidden and hard to spot so the first step would be to detect them. Then you’ll have to solve another puzzle, as they all have locks hidden in different locations. It’s both fun and challenging, as long as you’re not in a hurry.

This piece is both for adults and children. It would be easier to integrate into a kid’s room because of the colorful and playful design. Of course, a modern home would also make a great location. As for the materials, it was made using plywood, wood glue and magnets. The piece consists of three boxes, each containing a single drawer. Additional cubes are available in 2×2, 4×4, 5×5 etc in case you need more or less drawers. This means you can customize your own chest of drawers. You can also choose the color to display or make it match your mood. You can also scramble them and get original combinations.{found on instructables}
