Rubik’s Cube Chest of Drawers

Build awesome chest for your creative apartment.
Well, this is something, a serious construction project! While Handi is working on renovating our new workshop, I decided to show you work that looks even more complicated than painting 3m high walls. Makendo, one of the contributors for "Instructables", did a great job designing and then building this Rubik's Cube Chest of Drawers for kids room.

I love the design and the whole idea of rotating drawers. Some of you may say it is a piece of cake, but who has got enough patience and power to complete this step by step guide!? Anyway, I wish there was at least one of you to feel inspired, manage to finish it, and show it to us afterwards.
