The first dice tower I made is weirdly tall. It was essentially a series of rings that I then built a spiral staircase inside. In later iterations of my design, I realized it’s easier to build the steps as part of the ring itself, wasting less wood and making assembly much easier.

For that first tower, I wasn’t sure how bit to make the opening in the top, so I tried making an open hatch and it looked terrible. Covered it with felt and called it a day.look a

With each iteration of the design, it gets a little simpler to make. the later ones have much more visually pleasing proportions, in my opinion.

I have an Etsy shop for anyone interested

That is neat, however, on a winning streak one’d wish it was much shorter, while loosing, you couldn’t make it tall enough.

I like how to tower looked without the felt but it’s great to read about your learning experience! I might just have to try this for myself one day as it looks easy enough to replicate (I hope!)

Cool! Call me ignorant, but I never knew such a thing existed. Looks like a challenge to build!
