Yet another way to use up scraps; this pair is made from Beech with Mahogany inlays. Those who have had the benefit of a misspent youth will note that the smaller die is a Right-handed one while the larger die (3”) is a Left-handed one. These don’t roll under the furniture so easily.

Looks really kewl. I would have never even thought to evaluate right-hand/left-hand…Wait…I didn’t know there was such thing…Never really evaluated that before.

Very nicely executed.

So, does a left hand vs. right hand designed dice roll differently if used in the opposite hand it’s made for?

I do like the look. Quite unique and much more elegant than the plastic version.

Inlay is something I am hoping to learn soon. So many cool things you can do with it. Awesome die, by the way.

Dennis: These were easy to inlay, the round dots were done using a forstner bit and the square ones using a mortiser.
