  1. dice towers I've made Part 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    A while ago I posted some dice towers I've made(that post can be found here) and I recently got inspired to redo my design and improve the look. In the first picture from left to right: Virginia Pine finished with Osmo Polyx, Virginia Pine with a water based finish, and Poplar with a satin...
  2. Dice Vaults

    A month or so before Christmas, I was contacted by someone on Etsy who wanted to know if I could make a paired dice vault and tower with matching inlay, for a Christmas present. I'd made several towers but had yet to make a vault, so I jumped at the opportunity. After the first one was done, I...
  3. Dice Tower and Tray

    Yes, I am a nerd. I'm in two different tabletop RPG groups that require substantial amounts dice rolling. I had some cherry and walnut cutoffs from another project that I am working on and decided to throw these together. Found and resawed a bit of paduak for color. Everything is held together...
  4. Dice Puzzle--Firewood to frustrating

    I had favorited KnotCurser's Diabolical Dice Puzzle when it was posted, but just finally got around to making one of my own. Not exceptionally difficult to make, but a lot of fun. The blocks are soft maple from a tree we had taken down a couple years ago. Some of the wood was kept for use in...
  5. Shut Box

    Simple shut-box game, but instead of using wooden numbered tabs, I bought a pack of dominoes and used those instead. VERY popular at parties and easy to make. I used a cheap piece of plywood to make the sides and red felt to cover the bottom. Simple, afternoon project…good drinking game as well!
  6. Shut The Box

    I made this game (called "Shut the Box") for a gift exchange. We were supposed to spend only $5.00. I decided to use what I had and buy what I needed. I ended up spending $4.96, just under the limit. I used oak for the tiles. Anyone know what the box is made of? I am still learning how to...
  7. Dice Tower - Curse negator

    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...
  8. Quarriors Dice Tray

    This was a project completed for a game my wife and I play called Quarriors. We wanted to keep the game more organized and customize our experience, so I designed and built some simple dice trays. Because we wanted to use them this weekend, we defaulted to a base wooden tray purchased from...
  9. Dice Tower

    I made some of these for Christmas gifts this year. Farkle is a fun Dice game and of course you could play Yahtzee. The Tower fits into the base for storage and keeps Dice from falling out of the game while being moved around. Felt feet allow it to slide on the table. White oak and clear...
  10. Diabolical Dice Puzzle

    I wanted to make a puzzle that appeared really simple to solve, but most certainly isn't - this is most certainly that puzzle! When you look at it completed it looks really easy to assemble - just nine pieces, all the same size - and they all get stacked in a neat pattern. To make it even...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My fiancee has eluded to purchasing me a lathe as one of my christmas presents and well I've watched a few excerpts on lathe turning but i'm still unfamiliar with the turning tools. For any and all you turners out there what basic tools does one need in starting in lathe turning. I do most or...

    My friends and I often play tabletop games that require rolling multiple hard plastic dice (think DnD or 40k). I thought it might be fun to make a tray to roll the dice into so they don't fly everywhere. Or maybe a dice tower. I haven't thought out an actual design yet, but it will probably be...

    Starting Out The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn't much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home...

    The Idea I am a big board game geek and because of that I have been trying to think of how to tie my new hobby of woodworking with the joy of playing board games. I decided to make a simple dice tower. A dice tower helps you roll dice to ensure no cheating as well as keep the dice from falling...

    Anyone "Game" for Turning Some Dice Cups? Note: I posted this question on the Forums, but since I think the Blogs get more reads I thought I'd give it a go here as well. One of my other hobbies involves boardgames, and as such I belong to a boardgame community over at BoardGameGeek. One of the...

    DICE - using up scraps 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...

    Has anyone tried the General Finishes Water Based Pre-Stain Conditioner Natural? I would like to get some feedback on which woods it was used with, finishing process you used and the end result of your finish.
