DIY Rubik’s Cube Dresser

This Rubik’s cube dresser is not as complex as the actual puzzle. The dresser simply consists of three drawers stacked on top of each other using Lazy Susan bearings. This allows it to rotate 360 degrees.

Although it doesn’t have the same mechanisms as the actual Rubik’s cube, it’s still a puzzle that can keep the kids busy. The coloured tiles are detachable, and can be rearranged using magnets, allowing them to complete the puzzle.

And let’s not forget that it is a functional storage unit. In fact accessing the items stored inside the dresser is made easy as the drawers can rotate. This is perfect storage for the kids room where they can keep their underwear, socks, and even their toys.
