I made this set for a guy who has a Cherry Game Table and wanted a Domino set to match. This set has, as all of my sets do, rare earth magnets in the lid and box that pull the lid shut with a snap at the end.This set also has Black Buffalo hide in the box floor. His initials are G.B. thus the GeeBee nickname. I do my inlays using a Milescraft Pantograph to do the engraving and at this point use Epoxy to fill them. It has worked really well thus far. I am still learning how to do woodworking and really got into the smaller woodworking projects to learn enough to do larger projects. Thanks for looking at my projects and hope you ejoy them as much as I enjoy making them, it’s a great hobby.

Learning to do small projects helps on big projects. Mistakes show up quicker on the small ones. Another nice job.

Another beautiful set! That is some attractive Jatoba with some great grain and color. It’s a real joy to work with isn’t it?

Thanks for looking….. I certainly appeciate your comments…. I hope the two sets I am working on now will be the best yet. I will post them when completed. In the interum you can look at my Flickr Page to see the progress if you would like, I have documented them along the way starting from a Mesquite Slab under Lee M’s Set for those who are interested in what goes into one of these sets….
