This Domino Set was made for a friend at work who is a Saints fan, lol but I didn’t hold that against him…. They are made from Curly Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba), it has Buffalo Calf Hide in the bottom. The Domino’s are made from a Cutting Board Material that comes sandwiched with Black outside and White inside from Woodcraft they have stainless steel 3/32 round head rivets for the spinners. The Inlays were done with System Three Mirror Coat for the emblems and System Three dyed epoxy for the name. The finish was done on a Beall Wood Buff System. These were a real pleasure to do, just one of those project build’s that went really smooth, almost flawless. He was very patient on the deadline (The best kind of customer) as there have been a couple of projects that these were put on hold for, which just had to be done. I am quite sure he is going to like them as he has already seen pictures and sent me a txt. I hope you all like them as well and thanks for looking….

Rick, Jatoba is one of my favorites but I have never had any with curl. You did your usual perfect job on these! Have you ever filled the grain/pores on Jatoba? It looks like dark red glass with nothing but BLO and wax!

Thanks Andy…. I found these boards on Ebay of all places. Beautiful figure and dead on flat and straight they were a good buy. I didn’t use anything on this set but the Beall Wood Buff System. Which I have no doubt I will be using from now on, no drying time and perfect finish in just a few minutes. I used it on the inside as well prior to glue up, which was comical because any glue squeeze out just flaked off after drying.
Thanks for looking Rick….

Great box design and the joinery as well. Like the sliding top and the domino pieces. Very well done and the emblem inlays and letters added a nice touch.

Fantastic piece of hand work. Very sophisticated. Can you share a plan of this set? Keep up the good work.
