I made this for my Nephew, he is 18th years old today and now is officially a adult, he like to play Domino so I decided to make one for him. very simple project but I had some challenge with the finish, TOO MANY small pcs and lots of sanding between coats. but fun to make,.

The pcs are Maple and Cedar, the box is aromatic cedar and there is no finish inside, so it smells good when open the box.

thks for stopping by!

Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
Why do you think they call it the ’left coast’?

Did you have a jig or something to make the spots accurate?

That is a great gift, and I can only imagine all the finishing work you had to do on each little piece. It came eut awesome

Hey Hasbeen, the jig is at Rockler, they sell templete and bit set, or separate bits.

I think that this is really special and you did a good job on it.

Hola Robelo, gracias por tus comentarios. Es un tipo de clavo que encontre en una ferreteria aqui en Gdl, no recuerdo el nombre, pero busca donde vendan solo herrajes de carpinteria, seguro los encuentras. cuando pregunte si tenian clavos con cabeza redonda le hice referencia al domino para que supieran de que hablaba.
