Count me in, Jim, and I am okay with international shipping.

Ya know, achieving a perfect cube is pretty challenging in and of itself without actually making something out of it...  Cheesy

  If it is not too late I think I will give this a try.  Even have an idea already if I can make it work.

Plenty of time.  We still have 3 weeks until the deadline. 

The more the merrier!  Anyone else?

I know I am mentally deficient at the best of times
But are we supposed to start with a cube
And turn some thing?

I just want to be clear.

My 1 working brain cell apparently is on strike today

I think I want in on this.

Once the cube is established your task is to turn a piece to trade that will be a challenge to you but will also leave some part of the cube so that it will be known that you used a cube to start with.

Dennis, welcome to the challenge.  Look at the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register of the last Cube C&T to get some ideas.

Dennis, yes, you start with a cube and make something from it, leaving at least some corners or edges that show that it was originally a cube.

I must have got lucky, or it was omen, the cube started out perfect 3.125 x 3.125 x 3.125 after a few minutes on the oscillating belt sander.
what happened after I mounted it on the lathe, well lets just say design opportunities abound, Cheesy  Sometimes the wood just has a way of letting one know what doesn't belong. I definitely learned some new things.

Funny thing about that...  Some people wonder why we call it a challenge. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Dennis, in the first post of this thread: 

This one is a bit of a challenge.  We’ll go back and revisit another oldie/goldie, the Cube Challenge.  Here's the  deal.  You start with a cube.  It doesn't have to be one piece of wood, it can be a glue up.  For this challenge we'll say no larger than 5" x 5" x 5".  Once the cube is established your task is to turn a piece to trade that will be a challenge to you but will also leave some part of the cube so that it will be known that you used a cube to start with.  Feel free to look back in the Gallery Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register of the pieces that were turned for the last cube challenge.  If you participated, do not do the same thing you did last time.  Even though we will all start with a 3" to 5" cube, your final size will vary depending on how large your cube is and your design.  However, try to keep as much of the size as possible.  I expect to see edges, corners, points, etc. as evidence of the original cube being used.

A couple of  these: Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register also fit the specs.


Take care
Bob

While I'm not the cube police, I think you should start with a proper cube, without the extra for the foot.(that may be the challenge part for you)
If we all start with something other than a true cube, the we lose an element of the challenge.
