April, 2009—This was fun little project and was very quick. I used clear select pine boards. Cut them to the length I wanted (about 10-inches). Eased all edges. Sanded. Then made the slots using my dado set up in the table saw. The dado blade was tilted to about 10-degrees. The finish was a rub-on poly satin.

The length and width, and angle of the slots is all completely open to personal preferences. It’s about as easy to make ten of these at a time as it is to make just two.

I just bought a new domino set and now I’m going to have to make a couple of these. I will never get my workshop and kitchen cabinets finished if people keep posting projects I must build as well!

Great idea.
With my luck playing “Mexican Train” dominos I need one about 36” long (-:
I will be making some soon. I will just have to use two or three for my self.
For those of you who haven’t tried Mexican Train or similar games called Chicken foot, look it up on the internet. It is a fun “parlor” game for all ages. And these tile holders will be a great help.

Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
Why do you think they call it the ‘left’ coast?

I totally second Mark’s comment!

Have your say...
