July, 2014—This set of 16 dice were made for my father as a special gift. If you look at them carefully, you will see that each is uniquely configured. The 6, 2, and 3 sides are the only sides that may be varied in their orientation relative to each other. The 1, 4, and 5 sides have no layout variation. Opposite sides must always add to 7.
Also shown in the photos is the jig I used to drill the holes for the 3/16-inch brass rod plugs. Each die is about 1-inch on a side. Obviously these are purely ornamental since their weight is not balanced. If put to use, I’ve no doubt “snake eyes” would be a frequent outcome. :-)
Lacquer spray finish.
So, which one of the 16 is the world standard?
