Double 6 Domino Set. 2×1x1/2 walnut w/ maple vernier. Making the set is dead simple, sanding 28 1×2 pieces is a PITA. Dominoes are finished with sprayed on satin Poly U. The box, I brushed on satin Poly U. I find spraying small boxes a pain as I always end up with runs and an uneven finish.

Great looking set, did you laminate a long strip and then cut the dominoes? I have been using Minwax water
based Wipe on Poly for all my small projects, it goes on easy and you do not have to clean the gun each time.

That’s a beautiful set of dominos…I don’t play, but I have friends who do and I’ve been thinking I’d like to try making a set…

try this for your small boxes…after I cut the sides I tape off the mitered ends and apply finish to the insides of the pieces….after I’ve done that I do my glue up…...this accomplishes 2 things…you get a good finish on the inside of the box and the finish makes the glue easy to wipe off when you do the glue up without having to sand on the inside of the box..I’ve had very good results with this method….it’s also a good idea to do the insides of the bottom and top before the glue up as well…

Bluepine38: Here was the steps that I did to make the set
I planed the stock to thickness
ripped it to width
There were plenty of non straight grains in the strips so I cut out the worse. Thinking that they should be a similar as possible so that you can’t “read” them.
I laminated the strips with PSA laminate.
Cut them length on the miter saw
Cut the “divider” in the middle
Drilled the dots
rounded the ends over on the disc sander.
Hand sanded
Hand sanded
Hand sanded
Hand sanded
Hand sanded
Hand sanded some more
Used a Dremel to “sand” the dots
Then I finished them.
