Started to make this box for the summer contest but I did not get it finished in time…

So I decided to change the purpose of it to hold Trading Cards.

Poplar & Bloodwood with Dice for Knobs

Enjoy

Very cool. Very nice design. The knobs are not particularly my taste, but the accents are just enough.

Yes, I debated on the knobs, OK for now but at least in the future if I don’t like them anymore I can always change them.

it wasn’t a knock, just a comment. I can see were they would have there place. 20 or 25 years ago I produced my own catalog with woodworking items. (That was back before it was easy) One of the biggested sellers was boxes for baseball cards.

I need to make one for my Magic the Gathering cards. I have a smaller one but my decks won’t fit in it anymore. I need a box like this. I love the knobs! I think I’ll use all d20 on mine.

Emerald – Yes my daughter has gotten into it pretty heavily lately.

I like it also, but I have collected Trading cards in general for years…

DonW – I wasn’t concerned I also have thought long & hard about the Knobs… ;)

I’m up to about 7000 cards. This will work nicely. Thanks for the idea!

Speaking as a long time casual RPG gamer, the knobs are excellent, and the case as well!

Pretty funky, I kind of like the knobs actually. Gives it some more color. Unique looking project.
