A friend asked if I could make these for his gift shop. Sure. 20 of them go there tomorrow. Made of Beetle Kill Pine. They are 3-1/2 inches cubed. I used a electric branding iron for the 1/2 inch dots.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Would make cool crap dice. I think the novelty in this is great. Nice work.

The colour variation in the beetle-kill pine makes for some great visual interest.

Nice job.
I can spot a problem on the bottom right one in the first picture.
As a rule all two opposite sides of a die should sum to 7. On that one the 3 and 4 are adjacent

Those look and are wonderful & whimsical.

I would like to suggest a companion/follow-up piece.
To go with the dice…. a deck of cards.
Bet those would be “big” sellers!!!

Fine looking dies.
Next, a cribbage board with 1/2” holes.
