Hi Lumberjocks

My friends and I, enjoy playing board games when we get together, so I wanted something nice to go along with our game night. I have looked at several designs for various dice towers. Luckily I stumbled upon Hampshire Woodworks gallery, and found the design I liked the most. It looks inspired by the Geek Chic design.
here is a link:

I don’t believe in anything superficial, but I DO believe in the truth of statistics!
Among my friends, there are 2 that suffer the dark curse of 1D6´s, and cant roll a 2, to save their life. However by rolling through this dice tower, they managed to not only prevent utter failure, but actually make useful rolls.
I firmly believe touch of the natural woods drain the negative energy, and store it deep within the grain, where it is slowly digested. Overuse and abuse of the tower, showed a slight decline in fantastic results, yet it still remained above average. This is a perfect gift for anyone suffering the dark curse.

This is pure science folks. There are no valid arguments against that!

Wood species: Cumaru and Birch

Joinery: Overlap cut rabbets with splines and grooved floating panel for bottom.

Finish: 4 layers of spray-on lacquer, and Grit 300 sandpaper.

Cost: all built with scraps, so 0$

Fight the curse!

Excellent thanks for sharing. Interesting idea on “rolling the dice”.

Cool idea. I doubt it would negate any cursing from me, as I also can never seem to roll a YAHTZEE !

Very nice. I think the splines and plexiglass are improvements over your inspiration, as well.

Beautiful. It’d make a great gift for fellow gamers as well. Adding this to my list of things to make.

JoeinGa… I guarantee this will ensure you never have to cross out your Yatzee again… The curse is hindered by hardwood. Science!

Adam. The splines are merely decorative, as the joint is strong enough as is, but the plexiglass is fun yeah :-D

I don’t get it. You steal pictures and videos from other people and make a generic blog about dice towers, apparently more than one because I found the same pictures on similar dice tower blogs. Then spam the blog. What’s the game? There is nothing for sale or links to an e-commerce site. Is this to manipulate search rankings in some way? What’s the scam?
