I decided to go back and redo the exterior walls. I wanted to learn how to use my router anyways so I thought I should start here. I am not sure whats its call but I make grooves for the shelving units to fit into as well as the front face of the case. I was originally just going to have it set in place and clasp onto the front but thought it would look nice if it had a channel to rest into. The router works great and I think i got the hang of it. So far everything is coming out much nicer th...
I have decided on painting the case and tower blue and green. I chose a rather bright color because I love bright colors. I did not paint the inside bottom of the tray because I want to purchase some reflective tape and line the walls for easier viewing of the rolled dice.
I spend about two hours making this box. It came out great. Was super easy to make. Not much trouble at all. I now just have to go and buy the hardware and then thinking about painting it.
So after making the dice tower, I decided I was not finished. I wanted to build something to stop the dice from rolling too far out of the dice tower. So I started of with the idea of just making a tray but then thought why not make a box to hold the dice tower when not in use. I went back to the drawing board, i.e. Sketchup, and designed a case to hold my new dice tower. The best part is the lid could be used as a backboard for throwing the dice down the shoot.
I drew out all the cuts after I planed them out in Sketchup and then got to use my new bandsaw for the first time. Everything came out perfectly. I decided I would glue all the pieces together instead of nailing them. I started off by gluing the randomizer and then measuring for the walls. It did not take too long. I made sure to wait and hour for the glue to dry before I started on the walls but other then that it probably only took one hour. After I had it all glued together I sand...
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 spi...
I am a board game geek. I love board games, but not your monopoly or sorry. I play what is know as European board games. They are much more advanced and have deeper themes. These games have many pieces and need a lot of space to play. Because of this I have decided to look at some table that others have built and take what I like and make my own. So far these are the features I enjoy and I hope to be able to build this table for myself soon. I have put in a lot of nice touches such as doveta...
