"Two Inch Cube"? Double it!

I've no problem with rounding numbers for brevity's sake. But be careful: small differences in one dimension rapidly become huge differences when cubed:

A real two in cube would have a volume of 131.096 cubic centimetres:

this 6.5 cm cube has a volume of 274.625 cc: more than double the first.
