I'm fairly new to the hobby, and, as such, don't have any wooden cubes. I really need some (for a game I'm designing), and I thought I could buy some from somewhere. Then I remembered I had some wooden rods in my shed that could be cut up into cubes. I'm not sure of the exact size, but it's less than a cenitmetre: it's 8mm by 8mm.
Do any of you guys know the standard size for cubes? Or anywhere (preferably in the UK/EU) where I can buy some?

8mmx8mm is a fine size for cubes. There isn't a single "standard size" as various games use cubes in a variety of sizes. 8mm, 10mm and 12mm are all common. For my own uses, I searched ebay for centimeter cubes. The ones I got came in 6 colors and were plastic.

It appears from those sites that 8x8x8 are the standard sizes. Thanks a lot!

The short end?

Sorry, the width x breadth, as opposed to length x breadth or something. Apologies for bad terminology.

Thanks a lot! It appears 8mm is an OK size to use.

No need to apologise, just ribbing you a bit. And welcome to BGG.
