I had a cpl people who have seen these large dice cut from 4×4 ask me to make them some. I made the dice by simply cutting squares from 4×4 cut offs I had laying around. Used forstner bit and drill press for the pips (as I learned the dots are called while researching their placement, lol). Made the box from decent plywood, cheap hinges, latch, drawer pull, some chalkboard paint. I’ve actually made about five of these to date and keep making slight variations like a holder for chalk at bottom of board that helps to stabilize the box when closed.

Novel idea! I like it. Creative idea for the storage/score keeping box.

Clever idea! Great game for camping trips. Might have to build a set for my wife and me. Well done!
