The project is a custom game box made for my Grandma. She loves to play Dominos and Bridge, but recently has had some health problems making holding the Dominos and playing Cards difficult. My answer to help with this comes from ideas other members presented on here.
The dominos are a double-six set made from cherry. This are 1/2” by 1” by 2” (1/2 instead of 3/8 because they are easier to pickup and hold.) They fit inside a box so it is easier to lift out and put back all the dominos at once. The inner box is finished with flocking material.
The five squares are playing card holders that will hold up to 15 cards in three rows. The deminsions are 3/8”t by 4 3/8” square. The slots are spaced 1 inch apart and are a 1/4” deep at a five degree angle. The bottle is finished with the flocking material and they can be used as drink coaster when not holding cards.
The display box is made to display the contents with 1/4” plexiglass along the length. The lid and box sides are made from the same cherry and pine that the dominos and card holders were milled from. All pieces are finished with spray poly.
Thanks for looking and for the ideas everyone shares on here.
