You can do it in a minimum of 6 cuts. Each face of the center cube must be cut once, and you can't possibly cut 2 faces of the same cube at the same time. Therefore, you need all 6 cuts to separate the 27 cubes. "A cube is to be cut into 27 smaller cubes (just like a Rubik's Cube).Aug 1, 2002

Thinking from a wood working perspective… no, you always account for blade width. But I understand your question.

No, look at the center cube. each face of the center cube can only be created from one cut and it has 6 faces, so 6 cuts is min.
