One thought on “Building Paula Beardell Krieg’s cube”

Uh oh.
I have a different explanation about why your shapes turned out a bit smaller than mine.

When I made the cube that the pink and yellow pieces fit into, I started with a 5 and 5/8″ square, as that was the measurement I remembered from having made a set for myself. But the cube turned out too small.

I remade the cube, just a bit bigger. It was still too small. I was confused, but it didn’t occur to me to question my memory about the measurement.

I remade the cube again, just a bit bigger still. It was still a bit too small, as evidenced by the fact that the cube doesn’t close all the way when the pieces are inside, but I felt done with making little squares cubes for the day, so that’s what you got. What could go wrong?

Later I realized that I should have started with a square that was 5 and 7/8″

From what I inferred (from the last video of your previous post) you used the measurement of the cube, not the pieces, to make your shapes. Which means that they probably fit perfectly inside of the paper box, but, yes, are a bit smaller than the pink and yellows.
