no previous part Part 1 of Dice Tower series Part 2: The Tower »

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 off the table and away from knocking all the pieces off the board.

I found several ideas online and went from there. I decided for the randomizer inside the tower I would use 2×2 blocks cut into a spiral slide. I put everything together on in Sketchup, as I always do before building.

I then made sure I had all the dimensions and cuts all pre-planed out in the computer before I purchased the materials.

This is total geek hardware. But it’s awesome.
