Hey there. I am getting ready to begin a project for my church drama troupe to give us some easy props / set pieces in the form of hollow cubes. The cubes would be plywood and 2x4, generally 2'x2'x2' with one missing side and rectangular handles cut into either side.
I have a few questions for you, my fellow dramatists, that you might be able to answer.
Have you ever used these cubes?
What do you call them? (Is there an official name? I've been calling them set cubes...)
Of what are yours constructed and in what size(s)?
How heavy would you conjecture they are?
What interesting, imaginative, or effective uses have you gotten out of them?
Did you build them yourselves, have them built for you, or buy them (and how much did each cost to either build, requisition, or buy)?
I think I can probably get 8 cubes constructed for less than $150.00, not including paint and labor (which oughta be free thanks to our men's ministry).
