You can do it with 6, by doing 2 cuts through each dimension.
To prove that it can't be done in less, consider the centre of the big cube that will become one of the small cubes. You need a separate cut to separate each of its 6 faces from the wood that surrounds it. Happy Hallowe'en!

After Each Cut, You Can Stack The Pieces Any Way You Like Before Makeing Another Cut.

Please Help Me With This . Thanks
