When your teenage son asks you to work with him in the woodshop, there is only one answer, “Yes”. He has been using the one I made for him a few years ago and wanted to make a couple for friends. So we dug out my old drawings and headed to the shop. I pretty much just played the ‘coach’, he did all the work. A good learning experience for him. Great Father/Son time for me.

Dice tumblers are 4”x4”x8” and made with 5/16” thick walnut and poplar. Spray lacquer finish rubbed out with paste wax gives them a nice feel in your hands.

For a look at the ‘guts’ of the tumblers, look up my original post;

I made one of these and it was louder than possible, my wife hated it. So I sent it to my brother in law’s kids.

Yours look very nice though.

Very nice pair of dice towers. Nothing better then working on a project with your Son!
