I made this set for a friend I work with to give to his brother for Xmas. He and his Brother’s are all Marines. He wanted the synthetic dominos so that could be played with regularly. I make the Dominos out of a cutting board type material that is pretty durable. The wood grain dominos while beautiful the grain is really hard to keep consistant so you can’t learn what dominos are what. Thanks for looking….

I love em! The mesquite is still my favorite but these 2 color dominos are very cool. I’m seeing laminated dominos of different woods in your future! The joinery and finish is so perfect in all your boxes.

Laminated dominos are too simular to the Rockler kit. I like doing things my own way looking for improvements along the way. I got the Rockler setup early on and immediately closed up the package and it still sets on a shelf somewhere in my Shop. I mean dotting all the dominos and then cutting out seemed insane….lol The laminated type are great I just prefer solid wood ones. If you would like to know more about the way I do them please visit my Flickr page I have it pretty well documented there. In fact I am in the middle of what I hope are going to be my nicest sets yet. They are for a friends Father and Father-in-law for Xmas. The two sets came from the same piece of wood and are almost twins in wood grain.

That challenge coin inlay is a good idea, I think I’ll steal it. I was trying to think of things to put in the tops of boxes to make them more sellable and that is a great idea. I know lots of different organizations have these coins.
