Domino Box

I needed a box for my dominoes and this is what I came up with. It works well and looks good but I made a mistake and made it a bit to small, my dominoes barely fit . I’ll be making a few more of these to sell , we’ll see if there is any domino players out there.

Please let me know what you think, I enjoy the feedback.

Couldn’t you find any wood with character?!!!

I love it. Is the lid domino burned into the lid?

Hi Whitedog,

Great looking box

yettiman… the wood is coastal live oak , most of my boxes are made from old firewood that i find at friends and relatives. there is a lot of rot and termites in some of it. i don’t do a lot to stabilise it but after i re-saw it i microwave it to kill the bad stuff (don’t tell my wife). if i have a piece has to many holes in it i will sometimes use epoxy to fill and that helps make it stronger. for finnish i use danish oil then wipe-on polly then wax for feel.

hope that answers your question

Many thanks for the answer.

Very much appreciated

Great box. Love the design of the sliding lid. Wood is fantastic. The microwave is good for more then just drying green wood i see.

Great job.

Keep it up.

cool idea and nice Box…. I use the microwave to un- do wood glue when I need to re position edges.
I play dominos as well and wish to include a score board on my boxes as well
